I received my PhD from MIT Political Science in 2018. Currently, I am a postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse and research affiliate at MIT GOV/LAB.
My research focuses on the micro-foundations of political behavior to gain leverage on macro-political questions in comparative politics and the political economy of development. My current work explores the existence and consequences of social norms of voting in semi-authoritarian states, how citizens hold their governments accountable through policy non-compliance, and whether shared identity can attenuate out-group hate. I also work on designing research methods for developing country contexts.
