My research agenda is situated at the nexus of Comparative Politics and International Relations and focuses on autocrats and institutions' interaction, emphasizing resource distribution, regime stability, and transitions.

We analyze the relationship between PSM, leadership, and communication within the organization, utilizing the Public Employee Perception Survey Data of 2020. Read more
