About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Boston University. I am a comparative and international political economist, and my research focuses on the political economy of advanced industrial states and the politics of economic policymaking. My research draws theoretically from different disciplines, such at sociology, psychology, and economics, and my broader interests broadly include business-state relations, institutional change, antitrust, intellectual property rights, the politics of economic ideas.

My main research projects to date have focused on the domain competition and market power, including diverse topics such as trade policy, industrial policy, and intellectual property. My book, Monopoly Politics: Price Competition, Leaning, and the Evolution of Policy Regimes (under contract with oxford University Press), seeks to understand why many industrialized countries have alternated in the long run between national policy regimes in favor of enforcing price competition on one hand, and supporting market power and domestic monopolies on the other. I have completed extensive archival field research in the United States and France, to track the changes in economic beliefs among political and policy leaders over time in both countries.

My academic research has been been published in the Review of International Political Economy and World Politics. My policy writing has appeared in Promarket, The Hill, Persuasion, and American Affairs.

I completed my PhD in political science at Brown University in 2020. Prior to coming to Boston University, I was the Research Manager and Editor at the American Economic Liberties Project a non-profit policy and advocacy organization focused on antimonopoly policy. I have had research affiliations with the Rhodes Center for International Finance at Brown University, Johns Hopkins SAIS, the Center for European Studies at Sciences Po in Paris, and the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History.
