I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Watson Institute for International & Public Affairs and the William R. Rhodes Center for International Economics & Finance, both at Brown University. I received my Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University in March 2019, and lectured at the London School of Economics in 2018-2019.
My research is in comparative political economy, with a regional focus on Europe and the United States. In my current book project, I examine the causes and consequences of the Atlantic divide in antitrust, identifying the political origins of contemporary differences in law and policy.
I have also completed research projects that examine the impact of the Euro-crisis on the European public’s trust in government, the effects of the global financial crisis on the practices of European securities regulators, the effect of European integration on regulatory legalism, and the role of behavioral biases in political negotiations. Currently, I am working on collaborative projects that examine the relationship between labor market spending and support for European populism and the affect of economic interests on public support for the European Union.
