Professor of Economics, Michigan State University

I am a Professor of Economics at Michigan State University in East Lansing.

I also serve as an Associate Editor of the Journal of European Economic Association, and I am a Faculty Affiliate at the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) at Michigan State. I have previously taught in the Department of Politics at New York University in New York; in the School of Economics, Finance and Management at the University of Bristol in the UK; and in the Department of Government at Harvard University in Cambridge.

My main areas of research are Political Economy and Microeconomic Theory. I am currently researching questions on implementation theory, on conflict, and on redistricting. Previous research on information aggregation in financial markets; on electoral competition, party formation, and legislative bargaining; on discrimination; and on equilibrium selection has been published in economics journals such as the Journal of Political Economy, Theoretical Economics, Journal of Public Economics or Games and Economic Behavior; and in political science journals such as the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, or the Journal of Politics.
