I am an assistant professor of political science at George Washington University. I am also a Research Fellow at the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow and an Academy Scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies at Harvard University. My research interests include non-market strategy, political economy, corruption, and corporate governance, with current projects underway in Russia and the United States. My work has been published in the American Political Science Review, World PoliticsJournal of Politics, and British Journal of Political Science, among others. I am also the author of Politics for Profit: Business, Elections, and Policymaking in Russia, forthcoming at Cambridge University Press (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics).

Before coming to GW, I received a PhD in political science from Columbia University in 2016 and a B.A. in Political and Social Thought at the University of Virginia, where I was a Jefferson Scholar.

I have appeared on BBC, Al-Jazeera, Hearst TV, and local CBS and FOX affiliates to discuss my research and offer commentary on contemporary events regarding Russia and the United States.
