I am an Assistant Professor for Public Policy and Political Economy at the University of Texas at Dallas.

I am a political economist with a particular interest in the politics of finance. I analyze how governments obtain money, and how they spend it. A second research agenda explains variation in violence within a country. My work has appeared (or is forthcoming) in journals such as International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Peace Research, and World Development.

My CV is available here.
