I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Asian/Pacific Studies Institute at Duke University. 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 teach international political economy and competition policy.
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 from 2012 to 2015.
I have lived in Seoul, Vancouver, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, New York City, Ithaca, Berkeley, and now live in Durham. I love traveling, hiking, and trying local cuisine.
