Welcome to my website
I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science
in the Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences at
the California Institute of Technology. Previously, I was a
Post-Doctoral Associate in the Cowles Foundation for Research
in Economics at Yale University. I hold a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton
University where I was part of the Research Program in Political
Economy and received the Charlotte Elizabeth Procter Fellowship.
My research analyzes collective decision-making in committees and elections using different quantitative methods, such as structural estimation, causal inference, and text analysis. I study the effects of sequential decision-making at the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and the U.S. Supreme Court. My research also focuses on electoral competition and voting behavior in the U.S., Mexico and the Philippines.
