My research focuses on the decisions people make in politics and how both individual and contextual level factors influence people's decision making and behaviour. The topics I study include political participation, vote choice, trust, prosocial behaviour, the connections between culture and institutions, land rights and their effects on economic behaviour and political accountability and representation. Methodologically my work is diverse but driven by a concern about causal inference. My research combines tools such as field experiments, lab-in-the-field methods, surveys and formal theory. Mainly I think the most interesting social science questions can be explained by football (⚽, ¬ 🏈). I teach courses in comparative politics, elections and research methods. I received my PhD from the LSE.
