Curriculum Vitae

Background:

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.
