I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University and Associate Director of the LAPOP Lab. My research interests include comparative political behavior, political parties and partisanship, congruence and representation, legacies of political violence, and class and inequality.
I am the author of Party Brands in Crisis (Cambridge, 2016) and coeditor of Unequal Democracies (Cambridge, 2024, with Jonas Pontusson) and Campaigns and Voters in Developing Democracies (Michigan, 2019, with Virginia Oliveros and Luis Schiumerini). I am currently completing a new book with Leonid Peisakhin entitled, Children of Violence.
My research has also appeared in American Journal of Political Science, American Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and World Politics, among other outlets.
