I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Colorado. My research interests include international trade and finance, international organizations, domestic regulations, and the US foreign economic policy in the Asia-Pacific region.
My book project, Opening New Markets: Lowering Entry Barriers in Finance and Telecommunications, examines the interaction of institutions and interest groups in the financial and telecommunications services 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.
