My research interests are multi-faceted. My research spans several fields including Comparative Politics, International Security, International/Comparative Political Economy and Research methods. I am currently working on a project that examines how coup risk influences dictators’ decision to adopt multiparty elections. I am also interested in how the propensity of dictators to initiate diversionary conflict is shaped by domestic politics and institutions and how domestic politics influence inflows of international capital.
