This website is up-to-date, but my website has moved to mehdishadmehr.com
I am an associate professor of economics at the
University of Calgary Department of Economics. I received my PhD in Economics
from the University of Illinois in 2011.
I specialize in political economy and comparative politics. Methodologically, I focus on developing formal models, but I also use
both quantitative and qualitative methods. I am particularly interested in coordination games (super modular and global games), information aggregation, information manipulation, and screening.
Substantively, I focus on the politics of authoritarian regimes, but I also work on other topics such as judicial politics and electoral competition. I am particularly interested in regime change and revolutions,
contentious politics and social movements, leadership, state repression and censorship, and the role of ideology.
