About Me

My main research interests are in political economy with a focus on the politics of redistribution and international development. More specifically, I aim to answer the question “why are some societies poor, unequal, and violent?” I study the impact of inequality on the competition for government transfers. In linking inequality and violence, I am also interested in the interplay between civil conflict and socially embedded, intergenerational group inequality.
