I am Senior Researcher at the Bloomberg Center for Cities at Harvard University. Prior to this, I was Ford Foundation Associate Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

My research interests include comparative political behavior, democratic representation, subnational and urban politics, and social policy.

I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and my B.A. in French and German Literature from the University of Oxford. Prior to coming to Harvard, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute.
