Welcome! I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Yale University.
My research, which lies at the intersection of comparative and international political economy, examines the origins of fiscal institutions from three different angles: war, trade, and international finance.
My first book, Pawned States: State Building in the Era of International Finance, is forthcoming in The Economic History of the Western World Series of Princeton University Press (Summer 2022). In this book, I trace the long-term effects of international finance on state capacity and limited government.
