He is a comparative political economist and methodologist who specializes in measurement and builds statistical tools to answer substantive, policy-relevant, questions about political institutions.
While much of his work examines the interplay between legislative behavior, political careers, and party organization, his research also increasingly focuses on digital politics and policy, criminal justice policy, and the political economy of development.
