I am a PhD student in the government department. My current research applies methodological techniques and theory to understand the behavior of international states and actors. Some of my current interests include international behavior to combat climate change, responses to counterterrorism, and the connections between political institutions and financial markets. I earned by A.B. from Princeton University in 2009, and subsequently worked at the IFF, a Community Development Financial Institutions fund in Chicago; and at PricewaterhouseCoopers' Global Transfer Pricing division in New York.
