I am a graduate student in political science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I study international relations and international political economy, with an emphasis on the negotiation, design, and functioning of international institutions and the politics of trade. I am also interested in statistical approaches that address idiosyncrasies with the quality or structure of social science data, such as measurement error and selection problems. Before coming to Ann Arbor, I studied political science and economics in Berlin, Bologna, and Barcelona. A copy of my CV is available here. You will also find additional information on my publications and my current working papers on this website.
