Research Interests

My research interests focus on ethnic coalitions and power-sharing, civil wars, in particular ethnic conflict, democratization, and spatial methods.

I collected and contributed to several datasets listed below:

  • Democratic Electoral Systems (with Matt Golder): mattgolder.com/elections
  • Ethnic Cleavages Data (with Lars-Erik Cederman and Manuel Vogt): dataverse.harvard.edu/dataverse/ncb
  • Ethnic Power Relations Data Family, specifically GeoEPR and ACD2EPR (with Manuel Vogt, Seraina Ruegger, Lars-Erik Cederman, Philipp Hunziker, and Luc Girardin): growup.ethz.ch/pfe
  • Population and GDP per capita Data adjusted for border changes (with Philipp Hunziker): available on request
