My dissertation, ‘Essays in Political Economy’ is interdisciplinary, ranging from social choice to experimental economics to the measurement of party systems. My committee consists of Professors Bernard Grofman (chair), Donald Saari (Economics), Anthony McGann, Marek Kaminski and Michael McBride (Economics). I also hold an M.Sc. in Economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, an M.A. in International Trade Policy from George Washington University, and a B.A. from Hiram College.
I have articles in print or forthcoming in Electoral Studies (solo), Judicature, and Presidential Studies Quarterly (both joint with Bernard Grofman), as well as a number of additional manuscripts under submission, and several others which are at the advanced working paper stage.
I have worked as a teaching assistant for introductory statistics for social sciences, Social Sciences Honors and the American Presidency. My teaching interests include Comparative Political Economy, Game Theory for Political Scientists, Research Design, and the United States in a Comparative Perspective.
In my year at the EUI I will prepare my dissertation for publication and begin working on several other projects including the experimental study of corruption and bribery.
