I am a postdoctoral fellow with the Polarization Research Lab at Stanford University. My research interests are broadly focused on comparative politics, political economy, and political behavior. In my research, I use experimental and causal inference research designs, as well as conduct comparative case studies, to examine the conditions under which citizens constrain politicians in their attempts to undermine democratic institutions. While my primary focus is on European democracies, some of my work also covers the United States.
My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science, the Swiss Political Science Review, Party Politics, and Democratization. I have completed my Ph.D. in political science at the Center for Comparative and International Studies, ETH Zurich, and am an affiliated researcher with the UNSW Resilient Democracy Lab.
