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.
