I teach comparative politics with an emphasis on Latin America. My current research focuses on political organization and populism, and I direct Team Populism, a global scholarly network dedicated to the scientific study of populism's causes and consequences. Projects include the creation of a global populism dataset, experimental research on populism's rhetorical mechanisms, and the mitigation of populism's negative consequences.
