I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Harvard University, a J.D. candidate at Harvard Law School, a graduate student associate of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.
My research and teaching interests are in the fields of international law, public law, and empirical legal studies. In my current research, I focus on using quantitative methods to explore how domestic politics can drive compliance with international legal agreements. I am specifically studying the role of treaty ratification in preventing atrocities during civil wars, the conditions under which the United States complies with WTO decisions, and the role that international law plays in shaping public opinion on foreign policy.
I received a B.A. and M.A. in Political Science from Yale University in 2007. Prior to attending Harvard, I worked as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group.
