I am Ford Foundation Associate Professor of Public Policy in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University. My dissertation won the American Political Science Association’s Ernst B. Haas Best Dissertation Award in European Politics as well as the Best Dissertation Award in Urban Politics. For my teaching, I have received the Kennedy School's Innovations in Teaching Award as well as the School's Advisor of the Year award.

My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of comparative and urban politics, with a particular interest in political behavior and social policy in advanced industrial democracies.
