Welcome! I am Assistant Professor in LSE's International Relations Department. Before joining LSE, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Browne Center for International Politics at the University of Pennsylvania and taught at Wesleyan University as Visiting Assistant Professor. I received my Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University.
I study how international institutions affect domestic coalitions. My book project, Issue Linkage and the Logic of Hybrid Coalitions: Linking Trade and Environmental Protection, examines how environmental international institutions make trade deals politically feasible by making environmental provisions in trade deals look credible in the eyes of environmental activists in democracies. The project was funded by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and the Center for European Studies at Harvard.
My CV (last updated in September 2023) is available here.
