About Me

I study political economy and quantitative methodology. My substantive work focuses primarily on multinational corporations’ influence on politics. I have two main projects right now: one focuses on how multinational corporations’ involvement in their investment communities distorts the domestic political environment, and the other focuses on how corporate messaging affects voters’ political views.
