I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Arizona School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP). My research focuses on political behavior and institutions in single-party regimes. I am also an expert on politics in Vietnam and a lead consultant on the UNDP's annual PAPI survey (find here) in Vietnam. My current book project addresses the historical evolution of authoritarian political institutions and their impact on contemporary politics.
