Doctoral Student in Political Science
I am a doctoral student at Indiana University's Department of Political Science, as well as an affiliate of the IU Russian Studies Workshop. I was previously a visiting researcher with the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economic in Moscow and an affiliate of the Ostrom Workshop.
I study the political economy of corruption. My dissertation, "The Logic of Anti-Corruption Campaigns," investigates the ways in which elites use anti-corruption campaigns to maintain regimes. A second strand of my research concentrates on electoral fraud.
