Welcome.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of International Affairs at the University of Georgia. I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science at Penn State with a major field in comparative politics (minors in methods and geography), and for the 2016-2017 academic year I was a Boren Fellow in Senegal.

My research focuses on political institutions in African democracies, with a particular emphasis on Burkina Faso, Senegal, and Francophone Africa. My book project examines government formation processes in African democracies, concentrating specifically on executive-legislative relations.
