I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Quantitative Theory and Methods Department at Emory University. I use comparative politics and political economy tools, with a regional focus in Latin America, to investigate how to improve public goods provision in developing democracies. My research combines formal modeling, experiments, elite and popular surveys, and archival research. My papers have contributed to understanding the nexus between legislature size and welfare, the failures in bottom-up accountability, the effects of elite capturing, and the elite preferences toward climate change mitigation agreements. My research has been published or is forthcoming in the British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Experimental Political Science, Research and Politics, and Global Environmental Politics.
