Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Davis. For the 2016-17 academic year, I was visiting Princeton University as a Fellow in the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance.
My research focuses on international political economy. I aim to understand how international courts promote economic cooperation among countries and how domestic politics mediates their effect. My most recent project, supported by the Hellman Fellows Program investigates whether and why U.S. trade and immigration policy have shifted in a “backlash” against economic globalization. I love learning statistical methods and incorporating them into my research and teaching.
