I am a Lecturer in Comparative Politics in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney.

I study democratization, authoritarian regimes, and political parties, with a focus on Latin America. I am the co-editor of Life after Dictatorship: Authoritarian Successor Parties Worldwide (Cambridge University Press, 2018) and Challenges of Party-Building in Latin America (Cambridge University Press, 2016). My book manuscript, Conservative Party-Building in Latin America: Authoritarian Inheritance and Counterrevolutionary Struggle, is currently under review.

I have an A.B. in Politics from Princeton University (2006) and a Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University (2014). I am originally from British Columbia, Canada.
