Postdoctoral Associate, Department of Economics & Economic Growth Center, Yale University

I study topics at the intersection of development and political economics.

My current projects employ natural experiments to identify causes of violent conflict and ethnic divisions. These form part of a broader agenda on political institutions, state capacity, and economic development.

I am on the 2017/18 job market and will be available to interview at the ASSA meetings in Philadephia.
