I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Colorado Boulder. My research interests include international trade and finance, international organizations, and the US foreign economic policy in the Asia-Pacific region.
My book project, Negotiating Globalization: The Political Economy of Global Sectoral Trade Agreements in Information Technology, Telecommunications, and Finance, examines the interaction of institutions and interest groups in the financial services and high-technology industries.
I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley; and a B.A. magna cum laude in Government and Economics from Cornell University. I was a project director at the Berkeley APEC Study Center and a postdoctoral research associate at the Asian/Pacific Studies Institute at Duke University .
I have lived in Seoul, Vancouver, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, New York City, Ithaca, Berkeley, Durham, and now live in Boulder. I love traveling, hiking, and trying local cuisine.
