I study political behavior, political and economic development, and experimental and quantitative methodology for the social sciences. My focus at present is on voting behavior, enfranchisement, political psychology, and the interplay between elections and behavior in Southern African democracies. To date my work has been supported by the MIT Center for International Studies and J-PAL.

In July 2017 I will join the faculty at the University of California, Merced, as an Assistant Professor of Political Science
