Research Interests

I’m interested in understanding when and how humanly-devised rules can govern political behavior. I teach and write in the areas of Comparative Politics and International Relations, with primary expertise in the politics and institutions of the European Union (EU). In brief, I engage the question of rule governance in the EU, across the world and internationally on a wide range of institutional and political economy topics.
