I study the political economy of institutions and institutional change. My current project explains the operation of informal institutions within prisons globally and draws on a wide range of qualitative and quantitative sources. My work has appeared in both economics and political science journals, including the American Political Science Review and the Journal of Law, Economics, & Organization.

In September, I will join the Department of Political Science at Brown University.
