Geographic focus: Post-Communist Europe

Thematic interests: Transitional justice, post-communist legislatures; Game-theoretic approaches to institutions of transitional justice and democratization.

Current research: How parties changed the Sejm—using disaggregated voting records to study the transition from a consensus-based to a majoritarian-dominated parliament; strategies of party influence and survival in the Polish parliament.
