Teaching and Research

At Stanford I have taught PhD courses on foundations of political economy, and applied formal models of collective choice in U.S. political institutions. MBA and executive education (Sloan, MSx, SEP). Courses I have taught include business political strategy, and business ethics.  My research focuses on strategic interaction of politicians within and across institutions of government, with an emphasis on the U.S. Congress.

Current Projects

  • A framework for interpreting procedural change in collective-choice institutions
  • It’s about time: a theory of optimal obstruction in legislatures  (with Christian Fong)
  • When should informal rules be codified? (with Steve Callander)
