About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh (expected: 2018). I specialize in comparative politics  (political institutions, policy making, and Nordic/Scandinavian politics), but I have side interests in information economics, political economy, and judicial politics as well.

My dissertation deals with the decline of interest group representation and broad-based consensus in legislative preparation in the Nordic countries. The question relates more generally to the institutional trade-off between majoritarianism and consensus in the design of political institutions. My future work will delve into the broader consequences of these changes for democracy.
