Phillips Girgich Associate Professor of Business
University of California, Berkeley

I am a Political Economist interested in governance broadly understood. My research focuses on a range of topics: political influence, social conflict, corruption, morality and social norms, state formation and the development of state capabilities, and the qualities and behavior of politicians and public servants.

Most of my teaching takes place in the MBA program at Haas, where I teach Ethics, and at the doctoral level where I teach courses on political institutions, and on the history of government.
