He received his Ph.D. at the University of Washington in 2012. His primary research focuses on the roles of information in politics and governance. This includes studying the impacts of information on both voter and bureaucratic behaviour; the politics of transparency, accountability, and participation reforms; and transnational multistakeholder governance reform initiatives. He studies these topics using both qualitative and quantitative methods, and both in Mexico, South Africa, the United States, and in global context.
