I am an Assistant Professor in International Relations (with Quantitative Methods) at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham. My research interests include

In my current projects, I examine effects of foreign direct investment on repression and labour rights; how expropriation hinders human rights (with Noel Johnston and Paasha Mahdavi); judicial delays, impunity and corruption (with Dalson Figueiredo); effects of human rights shaming on economics in the developing world (with Krishna Vadlamannati).

I am involved in a number of initiatives to promote research transparency. I am an ambassador at the Center for Open Science (CFO) and a catalyst at the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS). I also write about reproducibility on my blog.

Before working at Nottingham, I taught statistics for social scientists at the Social Sciences Research Methods Centre, University of Cambridge. I completed my PhD in Politics and International Studies at the Department of Politics and International Studies at Cambridge.
