About Me

IMG_3070 2Welcome! I am a Visiting Lecturer in Politics at Mount Holyoke College. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019.  My research interests lie at the intersection of international relations and comparative politics, with a primary focus on the participation of authoritarian states in international economic institutions.  My dissertation analyzes trade agreements signed by authoritarian states.

Prior to my Ph.D., I received a Master’s degree in International Relations from the University of Chicago and an undergraduate degree from King’s College London. I previously worked as a research assistant at several think tanks, including the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin.
