Research Expertise


My research interests include authoritarian politics and political economy, Russia and the post-communist world, corruption, and political methodology. Current research projects focus on the use of large, innovative datasets including public opinion data and MRP, novel search engine data, and deep biographical data on elites to examine authoritarian popularity, arrests of authoritarian elites, and how loyalty works within networks in authoritarian cadres. Keywords: comparative politics; authoritarian politics; corruption; political methodology and experimental methods; Russian and post-communist politics; political economy; transitions to democracy and capitalism; bureaucracy; policing.
