I am currently a Research Analyst for the World Bank, where I began doing short term consulting work in March 2013. I am also a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of Washington, focusing on comparative political economy and political methodology. My dissertation examines what explains variation in firm strategies vis-à-vis rival firms and the government in emerging markets. You can read more about my doctoral research here and my broad research agenda and interests here.
Before coming to the University of Washington in 2009, I received a BA in International Affairs from Northeastern University in 2004 and was a Fulbright Fellow based in Nanjing, China, where I focused on labor issues such as female unemployment and reemployment in the post-privatization period during 2006-2007. Upon return from China, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard from 2007-2009.
