I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Stanford University and a Research Affiliate at the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). My main research focus is group identity and ingroup-outgroup relations. I study the conditions under which minority members identify with and are accepted by a majority, and the implications of that for the design of policies and institutions.
Major applications of my research include immigrant assimilation, the determinants of prejudice against ethnic and racial minorities, and the long-run effects of history for inter-group relations.
I do primarily empirical work in various historical and geographic contexts, with a main focus on early 20th century US and contemporary Western Europe. I received my PhD in Economics from Pompeu Fabra University in 2015.
