I am an Associate Professor in Comparative Politics in the department of Political Science and Director of the International Studies program. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego in 2006 and began working at the University of Kentucky the same year.

My book, Electoral Protest and Democracy in the Developing World ( Cambridge University Press) examines election-related protests and their consequences for democracy in developing countries. For this project I constructed an original data set of election-related protest and reform throughout the developing world for a thirty year period.

I have also published work on democracy and perceptions of fraud and corruption that has appeared in journals such as International Organization, Comparative Political Studies, Electoral Studies, and Journal of Experimental Political Science.

Thanks to grants from the National Science Foundation, I have been studying how voting laws affect political participation through social networks, as well as ethnic politics and violence in the Caribbean.

I am also writing a book about Parliamentary Brawls.
