Comparative Politics, Bureaucratic Politics, Development
My current research focuses on formal models of political accountability and bureaucratic effectiveness, particularly in the context of sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to these interests, I have conducted empirical fieldwork in Ghana on situational ethnicity, legislative oversight and the impact of development interventions. Hailing from Port Charlotte, FL, I received my A.B. in Economics with a secondary field in Government from Harvard College in 2009.
