He currently co-directs the Comparative Constitutions Project, an NSF-funded data set cataloging the world's constitutions since 1789.

His book, Why Parties and Governments Manipulate Elections: Theory, Practice, and Implications (2013), is a comparative study of the incentives underpinning electoral manipulation, with broad regional focus.
