I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Zurich (Chair of International Relations and International Political Economy). I earned Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in June 2021. In Fall 2022, I will be joining New York University Abu Dhabi as Assistant Professor of Political Science. My research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, international organizations, and domestic politics.

I am currently working on a book project which examines the dynamics among the International Monetary Fund (IMF), mass public in a borrower country, and international investors. The project is based on my Ph.D. dissertation, which won the Best Dissertation Award in IR at UW-Madison. My core arguments and the findings from one chapter of the book are published at Comparative Political Studies. 


Beyond the book project, I work on topics including international financial and monetary relations, trade policy, international cooperation, and public opinion.
