Director of the Political Science and Political Economy Group, STICERD Research Centre; Associate Professor of Political Science in the Department of Government at London School Of Economics And Political Science

My primary affiliation is at the London School of Economics and Political Science where I am an associate professor in political science in the Department of Government and the director of the Political Science and Political Economy group at the STICERD Research Center. I am also affiliated to the Center for Economic Policy Research as a research fellow and a member of the Political Economy Group steering committee, to the Rimini Center for Economic Analysis as a fellow and a member of the Political Economy Group steering committee, and to the Baffi Carefin Center at the Bocconi University as a research fellow. I received my Ph.D in economics from the University of Chicago in June 2014. I am the Editor-in-Chief of the Quarterly Journal of Political Science (jointly with Anthony Fowler). Before that, I served as Associate Editor for Formal Theory at PSRM, The Journal of the European Political Association and Associate Editor for Political Economy at the new open access Oxford Open Economics. I use formal theory and quantitative methods to study democratic problems, including discrimination in its various forms, and autocratic problems. I am also interested in the Theoretical Implications of the Empirical Models (or TIEM) to use a term coined by Pablo Montagnes and Scott Tyson. I teach political economy in the department of economics and the department of government at the LSE. I also have the privilege to feature as a Course Convenor of Understanding Discrimination, a 3-week online masterclass from LSE.
