I'm finishing my ninth year at GW, following two years at Australian National University. I currently teach undergraduate courses on democratization and game theory and a rotating series of graduate classes, including game theory, causal inference, and political regimes. My research focuses on democratization, democratic survival, autocratic institutions, and game theory. I have published a series of journal articles related to each of these topics. A book on democratization was published this year at Princeton University Press. I also have an ongoing project related to migration policy in autocracies with a co-author at UCLA, which has produced several articles and will culminate with a book. Other current work focuses on powersharing and democratic development, autocratic parties, coup diffusion, and the origins of autocratic institutions.
