Welcome to my website!
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Columbia University.
My research focuses on the politics of tax noncompliance (evasion & avoidance), which I tackle from both the comparative and subnational perspectives. The key question guiding my dissertation project is how tax noncompliance by the rich influences both the demand and supply of progressive taxation and redistribution.
I have also worked on historical political science, studying the impact of war on nation/state-building.
My teaching covers both substantive and methodological areas: from the politics of the EU to the comparative politics of redistribution, to qualitative and quantitative research methods.
