I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania concentrating in International Relations, with a secondary concentration in American Politics. My research engages in topics including public opinion, international cooperation, American foreign policy, and climate politics. I employ a variety of methods in my work, including text analysis, survey experiments, and a variety of statistical techniques. My dissertation examines how small and medium countries employ lobbying strategies and diplomatic capital to “punch above their weight” at the UN.

Before coming to Penn, I worked in the private sector as a market research consultant, taught English in Malaysia as a Fulbright ETA, and obtained a Master’s Degree in Political Science from Columbia University, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Philosophy from Rutgers University.
