Departmental Lecturer in Comparative Politics
Nuffield College

My research interests are in the political economy of development. I use quasi-experimental designs, to study the role of politicians and political institutions in economic development. Within this field, the main topic I am interested in is the role of money in politics.

 Before, I was a post-doctoral researcher at ETH-Zurich Public Policy Group (Chair: Dominik Hangartner), a fellow at Harvard-IQSS and I was part of the Visiting Scholars Program at NYU-Politics department. I completed my PhD at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and I am also currently an affiliate staff at the University of Oxford's Latin American Centre.

Before academia I used to work at the Inter-American Development Bank as a research fellow evaluating development projects in the field across Latin-America.
