Current Research

My research interests include comparative human rights, development and globalisation. In my current projects, I examine effects of foreign direct investment on rights protection; consequences of expropriation for developing nations' citizens (with Noel Johnston and Paasha Mahdavi); corruption and impunity in Brazil (with Dalson Figueiredo); and effects of human rights shaming on FDI (with Krishna Vadlamannati). I usually apply cross-sectional time series models and multiple imputation of missing data.

I am involved in a number of initiatives to promote research transparency. I am an ambassador at the Center for Open Science (CFO) and a catalyst at the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS). I also write about reproducibility on my blog.
