Assistant Professor of Government
Globalization Cluster Member
I am an Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College. I study the political causes and consequences of migration, such as how the presence of refugees affects local citizens' political attitudes and behaviors or how different government policies shape migration decisions. My current research projects span multiple countries in East Africa, Central Asia, and South America. I teach courses on political development, ethnicity and identity politics, and political economy with a focus on regions in the Global South.
