I am doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego, as well as Research Scholar at the Laboratory on International Law and Regulation and a consultant with the World Bank.

I primarily focus on political economy issues in the developing world. My research interests include the politics of foreign aid, the economics of maritime piracy, and the electoral logic of targeted spending and violence. In my dissertation, I study how and when foreign aid is used as a political tool. Using sub-national data, I look at how re-election incentives influence the distribution, effectiveness and extent of capture in foreign aid projects.
