I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics at Yale University. I will join the California Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences in 2017. I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University where I was enrolled in the program in Political Economy.

My research analyzes collective decision-making in committees and elections using different quantitative methods, such as structural estimation, causal inference, and text analysis. I have studied the effects of sequential deliberation on decision-making at the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the effects of deliberation in electoral politics using evidence from a randomized field experiment in the Philippines. My research also uses structural estimation to analyze dynamic decision-making problems in electoral politics with a focus on U.S. senatorial and presidential elections.
