I am a PhD. Candidate in the field of international relations at the University of Chicago. My primary research examines why states trade with their enemies, investigating the product level and temporal variation in wartime commercial policies of states vis-a-vis enemy belligerents. My broader research interests include international relations theory focusing on order formation and questions of state sovereignty.
For the academic year 2018-19, I am a research fellow with the Harvard Kennedy School Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs International Security Program. Prior to coming to the Belfer Center, I was the Smith Richardson pre-doctoral fellow with the International Security Studies Program at Yale University. I hold an MA from the University of Chicago's Committee on International Relations and a BA from the University of Southern California.
