research

More to follow, but for the time being it’s worth noting that my research interests include the following:

  • Participatory and deliberative democracy
  • Comparative institutional studies
  • New institutionalism
  • Patterns of minority participation / representation

I'll provide more details shortly, but if you have any questions in the meantime, drop me a line via the contact page of the site.
