I am a political scientist and development economist. My research focuses predominantly on questions surrounding international trade, industrialization and democratization. I also have an active research interest in causal inference and the discovery of natural experimental research designs for studying country-level political economic questions.

Please visit my personal website for my CV and recent research output.
