I am a Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. I earned my Ph.D. from New York University, and have previously taught at the University of Pittsburgh.

My research interests cut across the fields of comparative politics, positive political theory and political economy. I have a regional focus on Latin America, and I am an expert on Argentine politics.

My work addresses a number of different topics, including statutory policy-making, legislative politics, sovereign borrowing, electoral forensics, civil war exposure, and sports analytics.
