I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Political and Legal Analytics at Cardiff University’s School of Law and Politics. Since 2016, I have also been a consulting researcher for the Latin American Public Opinion Project at Vanderbilt University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018.

I study coalition bargaining and the organization of subnational government. My book project examines why so many countries have created new states, regions, and districts around the world since 1960, with a focus on Nigeria. My other research focuses on public opinion, mass-elite congruence, and quantitative methods.

I have previously worked as a research assistant to Olufemi Vaughan (Department of Black Studies, Amherst College) and a consultant for the Department for International Development. I have an M.A. from Wisconsin, an M.Phil. from the University of Cambridge, and a B.A. from Johns Hopkins University.
