Welcome

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona. I previously worked at CCNY for three years where I served as the Director of CCNY's MA in International Relations program. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University. I also spent three years as a Lecturer in International Political Economy and as Director of the MSc International Public Policy program at University College London. I hold a PhD from Emory University (‘10) and an MA from the University of Manchester (‘05). My research explores questions in:

- international political economy
- trade law and organizations
- institutional design
- political economy of conflict
