I am Assistant Professor of International Political Economy in the Department of Governance, School of Social Sciences and Technology, and the Munich School of Politics and Public Policy at the Technical University of Munich. I am also an affiliate member in the Department of Economics & Policy, School of Management. Since 2021, I am Associate Editor at Political Science Research & Methods.

My work focuses on the politics over global markets and the shape that globalization takes. My research falls into three areas: political institutions and trade; the ownership structure of firms and government debt; and quantitative methods.

In 2022, my work won the Lawrence Longley Best Article Award from the American Political Science Association, as well as the Marian Irish Best Paper Award from the Southern Political Science Association. My current research agenda is supported by an ERC Starting Grant for the project PINPOINT | Politics, Institutions, and Production Networks.

Before joining the Technical University of Munich, I was associate professor of political science at Texas A&M University. I earned my PhD in 2015 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and an MSc in Economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
