I am an assistant professor of Political Science at Stanford University. My research examines how identity and attitudes are shaped by state policies and history and how they themselves affect economic and political outcomes. I am particularly interested in the dynamics of assimilation, with a focus on immigrant groups’ responses to assimilationist policies and to patterns of native discrimination. I examine these issues using economic theory and statistical techniques applied on both modern and historical data. I received my PhD in Economics from Pompeu Fabra University in 2015.
