I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I recently received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University. Prior to joining Washington University, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) at the University of California, Berkeley. I study the comparative politics of developing countries, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Current work focuses on policing, crime and gender. My research employs experimental methods and formal theory, and I also write on research design. My work has been supported by the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) and has appeared in Science, Comparative Political Studies, the Journal of Development Studies and the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series A, among other journals.
