In my research, I concentrate on the fields of international and comparative political economy, with a particular focus on how distributional conflicts, policy preferences and institutions affect economic policy outcomes. Current projects examine the political economy of the global financial crisis and the euro crisis and the effect of exposure to globalization on individuals’ policy and partisan preferences. My work has been published by outlets such as Cambridge University Press, Economics & Politics, European Journal of Political Research, International Organization, International Studies Quarterly, Politische Vierteljahresschrift, Review of International Political Economy, and World Development.
