I am an Associate Professor at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University. My research interests lie broadly in political economy, with an emphasis on comparative democratization and elections, civil conflict, and international development. I am the author of Elections in Hard Times: Building Stronger Democracies in the 21st Century (2016, Cambridge University Press and Woodrow Wilson Center Press, with Irfan Nooruddin). My research has also appeared in the Journal of Politics, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Review of International Organizations, among other peer-reviewed journals. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan (2008) and a BA in Government from Harvard University.
