International Political Economy    |    International Organizations    |    Domestic Politics 



I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Zurich (Chair of International Relations and International Political Economy). I earned a Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in June 2021. My research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, international organizations, and domestic politics.

My dissertation examines the dynamics among the International Monetary Fund (IMF), mass public in a borrower country, and international investors. The dissertation received the Best Dissertation Award in IR by the Department of Political Science at UW-Madison in 2021. My core arguments and the findings from one chapter are accepted for publication at Comparative Political Studies. I am currently working on a book project based on the dissertation.


Prior to starting my Ph.D., I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northwestern University with double BAs in Political Science and Economics. I also worked as a corporate strategist at a financial firm.
