Ernestine Friedl Distinguished Professor of Political Science
Professor of Political Science
- I am interested in political institutions: This means that I want to know how the rules of the game of politics shape how people play...and what the consequences are. Maybe that kind of understanding will help us improve the world through appropriate institutional reforms!
- In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my family, running, and spending time in the woods with my dogs.
- I'm a big Beethoven buff...though sadly can't plan an instrument.
- I was born in Germany, and didn't speak any English until I was 12 years old.
