I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. My fields are International Relations and 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 focuses on state lobbying strategies and diplomatic capital 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.
