Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Davis. For the 2016-17 academic year, I visited Princeton University as a Fellow in the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance.


My research is on international political economy. I aim to understand how international courts promote economic cooperation among countries and how domestic politics mediates their effect. This research is featured in my forthcoming book, which was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. My most recent project, supported by the Hellman Fellows Programinvestigates whether and why U.S. trade and immigration policy have shifted in a “backlash” against economic globalization. I love learning about statistical methods and incorporating them into my research and teaching.
