I am a Junior Research Fellow at the Juan March Institute
in Madrid. Starting fall 2013, I will
be Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I received my Ph.D. from Princeton in 2011.
My research interests include comparative political behavior, Latin American politics,
political parties and partisanship, and preferences for redistribution. I am broadly interested in
how structural contexts condition voter preferences and behavior. My
current book project combines large-N analysis, survey experiments, and case comparisons to
explore how the dilution of party brands eroded partisan attachments in Latin America and facilitated
the collapse of established parties. Other ongoing projects examine the nature of partisanship in Latin America
and elsewhere, and the effects of inequality on preferences for redistribution. My previous
research has appeared or is forthcoming in American Journal of Political Science, American
Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies,
Electoral Studies, and Latin American Research Review.
