I research opposition political parties and movements in electoral authoritarian regimes and emerging democracies.  I am particularly interested in explaining why some parties and movements in these contexts are so successful while others are not.  I am also interested in how both authoritarians and their opponents are adapting to the digital world.  My comparative research is currently focused on Southeast Asia and Russia and the Post-Soviet region.  My research on Southeast Asia was recently awarded a Southeast Asia Research Group Fellow award for 2022.

In addition to, and intertwined with my substantive research interests, I have substantial interests in political methodology and data science.

I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Cornell University where I am teaching a PhD quantitative methods sequence, and an undergraduate course focused on data science applications in political science research. 

 

Before joining Cornell in the summer of 2022, I was an Assistant Teaching Professor of Political Science and Social Data Analytics at Penn State University for three years.
