I am formerly a solid-state physicist, who now specializes in American political economy, international relations, and comparative politics. In my research, I seek to 1) explain why some countries are better than others at science, technology, and innovation; 2) investigate the relationship between the presidency and US economic performance. My research has been published in the following journals:

Foreign Affairs
International Organization
Security Studies
Journal of Business Venturing
Review of Policy Research
PS: Political Science & Politics
Presidential Studies Quarterly
Critical Review
Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law
Journal of Political Science Education
Harvard International Review

I also served as Chair of the Science, Technology, and Environmental Politics Section of the APSA from 2008-2011.
