I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in International Political Economy in the School of Public Policy at UCL, where I was appointed in 2013. I served as the Departmental Tutor and Director of the Affiliate Programme in Political Science and International Relations from 2015-2018. I received my PhD in 2013 from the University of California, San Diego.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research largely falls within the realm of international political economy, with a particular focus on business-government relations. Much of my research revolves around the implications of firm heterogeneity and its consequences for firm-level internationalization for firms' policy stances. Other projects investigate the political-economy effects of institutional quality; modern diplomacy and international cooperation; and the effects of oligopoly. My personal website includes links to papers and descriptions of ongoing projects.

Teaching Summary

I currently teach International Political Economy at the advanced undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as International Trade Policy for postgraduates. I supervise dissertations at the MSc level within the department as well as at the undergraduate level for interdisciplinary programmes. At UCSD, I taught or assisted the delivery of classes including statistics and research design, international political economy, comparative political economy, and Chinese politics.
