I am currently an Assistant Professor of International Relations and Comparative Politics at the United States Military Academy at West Point. My research explores the role that economic shocks play in shaping durable mass preferences for democracy and authoritarianism in post-transition societies, particularly those of the former Soviet Union. I hold a Ph.D. in political science from Yale University, an M.A. in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies from Stanford University, as well as a B.A. in International Relations and Slavic Languages and Literature from Stanford.
