Area of Specialty: Comparative Politics, Methods, Public Administration & Public Policy
I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science at Texas A&M University. I study political behavior, autocratization/democratization, public policy, and political economy. I am interested in the linkages among clientelism, populism, polarization, inequality, gender, and dissonance as they affect political behavior. I focus on developing countries but this is not exclusive. I speak Russian in addition to English.
