Welcome. I am a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Science at Duke University. I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Western Ontario (London, Ontario, Canada), where I was awarded a Governor General's Gold Medal in recognition of my academic achievement.


I am broadly interested in the evolution of global agendas and norms, coalitional politics in financial governance, and new approaches to conceptual measurement in global politics. My research is published or forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, Review of International Political EconomyInternational Studies Perspectives, and Journal of International Development.

I have experience as an instructor in topics related to international political economy and research methodology at Western and King's University College. I also have experience as a teaching assistant at the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.
