Role: Faculty,
Research Area: Comparative Politics,
I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at West Virginia University in the John D. Rockefeller IV School of Policy and Politics. Previously, I served as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania during the 2014-2015 academic year. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from Vanderbilt University in 2014, and my undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2008.

My research examines the role of institutional characteristics and processes in shaping individual level political attitudes and behaviors, particularly in the Latin American context. My work has been published in the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, Electoral Studies, Comparative Political Studies, and Political Research Quarterly, and has been funded by a dissertation grant from the National Science Foundation.

My first book, Protest State: The Rise of Everyday Contention in Latin America, was published in 2018 with Oxford University Press. My second book, Life in the Political Machine: Dominant-Party Enclaves and the Citizens they Produce, was published with Oxford University Press in 2020.

PhD, Vanderbilt University, 2014
