I research issues surrounding comparative and international political economy. My core research interests include economic inequality and redistribution (from both a taxation and welfare state perspective). I am also interested in the politics of redistributional policies. In my dissertation, I analyze how income inequality affects political preferences regarding redistribution. At the COFFERS project, I also researched the consequences of international tax cooperation.
