  • Profile

    I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam, where I am part of the Political Economy and Transnational Governance (PETGOV) program group. My research interests span historical and comparative political economy and gender and political development with a regional focus in Europe. I study how long-term institutional and economic changes, such as state-building, democratization, and economic development shape family structures and women’s rights.  My dissertation-based book project , which won the Walter Dean Burnham Award for the Best Dissertation in History and Politics, provides novel evidence of the existence of women’s political rights long before the 20th century and shows how the establishment of modern political and legal institutions led to regressions in women's rights and their formal exclusion from the political sphere. Related work examines the intimate relationship between the distribution of power and resources in the family and women's political and economic rights. My earlier professional work and research focused on international fiscal integration, corporate tax policy, and debt crises.

    I have a Ph.D. and M.A. in Politics from Princeton, an M.S. in Applied Math and Statistics from Georgetown University and a B.A. in Government from Claremont McKenna College. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute at Brown University. I also worked at the International Monetary Fund and Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
