University of Richmond, BA Political Science and International Studies (2016)


I am a third-year Ph.D. student, and my major and minor are International Relations and Comparative Politics, respectively.

My research focuses on international security, and I am especially interested in studying how interstate cooperation helps with multilateral sanction effectiveness. I have also worked on projects studying quality of governance, citizen trust in government, human rights performance, and foreign policy of coalition governments.

I am currently a primary instructor for PS 210: Introduction to Comparative Politics.

I was a Lyman T Johnson Fellow in fall 2018. I have also been a Teaching Assistant for PS 230: Introduction to International Relations, PS 101: American Government and PS 210: Introduction to Comparative Politics.
