Biographical sketch and research interests

I am currently the Wick Cary Assistant Professor of Political Economy in the Department of International and Area Studies at the University of Oklahoma. In the Fall of 2018, I will be a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. in Government from Cornell University in 2017. I study public opinion and political behavior in authoritarian regimes, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. I am also interested in macro-issues of regime stability and legitimization in non-democratic and transitioning regimes.
