Since 2024, I am Lecturer in Politics at the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Southampton. Previously, I was a postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics at the Nuffield College, University of Oxford. I received my PhD in Politics from Northwestern University in 2019. My research focuses on political behavior, particularly in clientelism, misinformation, and the representation of marginalized groups. My work combines ethnography and survey methods to uncover the influence of culture on political behavior.
