I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University’s Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. My research focuses on party systems and social cleavages, authoritarian legacies, and political nostalgia during transitions from authoritarian rule. I explore these questions primarily with regard to Tunisia. In the fall, I expect to receive my PhD in political science from Yale University. I also have a BA in International Relations from Tufts University and an MS in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University. I have spent more than three years living in Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia. My CV is available here.
