Welcome to my web site. I am an Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Government Department at Cornell University. I study the interaction of political and economic systems, mostly in emerging market economies. I am also interested in how we construct explanations and make inferences in the social sciences.

I have a special interest in Southeast Asia, and am a faculty affiliate of the Southeast Asia Program, at Cornell, co-convener of the Southeast Asia Research Group, and president of the American Institute for Indonesian Studies.

On this page, you may find my CV; my research in progress, including papers and presentation slides; replication materials for published and forthcoming work; and syllabi and other information on the courses that I teach. You may be also interested in my blog. You can sign up for office hours here.
