Research

My research mainly focuses on the legislative process in presidential systems. How presidents and legislators get their jobs done? What shapes the relationship of presidents and their cabinet ministers? Additionally, I am also interested in political economy, with a substantive focus on the influence of multiparty cabinets in government distributive policies. Below, you can find a list of my works on these and other topics.
