Research
Broadly speaking, I am interested in democratization and democratic development. Much of my research addresses the role that information plays in developing democratic polities. I am also interested in advancing quantitative methods to measure the effect of information. I maintain active research projects in the former Soviet Union, Eastern and Southern Africa, and Mexico. To date, my work has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, and The Journal of Modern African Studies.
