I am a Political Economist
interested in governance broadly understood. My research focuses on a range
of topics: political influence, social conflict, corruption, morality and
social norms, state formation, the development of state capabilities, and
the qualities and behavior of politicians and public servants.
Most of my teaching takes place
in the MBA program at Haas, where I teach ethics, and at the doctoral level
where I teach courses on political economy.
