I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at Nazarbayev University. My research, which to date has focused on Sub-Saharan Africa, examines the role of local and national elites in political development. I am especially interested in the impacts of inter- and intra-elite contestation on state capacity and performance, the political salience of collective identities, and societal wellbeing. I teach courses on comparative politics, African politics, international development, and research methods.
