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 (SEAP), co-convener of the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG), and past president of the American Institute for Indonesian Studies (AIFIS). I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the Association for Analytical Learning about Islam and Muslim Societies (AALIMS).
For 2017-2020, I am the Treasurer of the American Political Science Association.
