Welcome to my website. I am an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh. I obtained my PhD in Political Science from New York University (2014).
I am a scholar of comparative politics with a focus on political representation. I approach this field from two complementary angles: (i) the credibility of party campaign communication and, (ii) the most effective strategies to curb corruption. Methodologically, I apply regression discontinuity designs to understand the impact of institutional choices on accountability, design survey experiments to estimate the effect of elite communication, and use text analysis to code political speeches. With a geographic focus on Western Europe, my research has led me to also study other regions, particularly Latin America. My work has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Politics, the British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Political Science Research and Methods, and Party Politics.
