Curriculum Vitae


Ph.D., Washington University in St. Louis, 2012. My research and teaching interests center on comparative democratic institutions with special regard for legislative and judicial institutions in Latin America. More generally I am interested in inter-branch relations, electoral institutions, and quantitative political methodology.

Research Agenda:

My research considers legislators' incentives for instigating conflict with national judicial institutions, and how legislators' might use said conflict for their own electoral gain. In addition, I have ongoing research projects which consider the outcome and influence of judicial elections in comparative perspective and legislative position taking via legislative speech and bill initiations.
