I am an Assistant Professor of Business and Government at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business. I am also an Affiliate Fellow at the Stigler Center, University of Chicago, Booth School of Business. I study political economy, with a focus on money in politics, and corporate political activity. I am especially interested in how corporations strategically combine different non-market strategies to influence politics, and the importance of the workplace for employees’ political activities. 

I specialize in quantitative analyses of big datasets. I use computational social science methods, causal inference for observational and experimental data, machine learning, and natural language processing tools.

Before joining CBS, I held postdoctoral and visiting positions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Humboldt University Berlin, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST). I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the Government Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2019.
