My main research agenda examines modern strategies of top-down accountability in non-democratic settings. I explore how authoritarian leaders leverage technological change and differences in political preferences across citizens to entrench their regime via the control of information flows, the production of entertainment or the use of violence. 

In a second research agenda, I consider which institutions of horizontal accountability, such as lobbying transparency or the media landscape, are most conducive to vertical accountability.
