I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Columbia University Department of Political Science, where I study international organizations, foreign aid, international political economy, and comparative politics in developing countries. My dissertation focuses on the status politics that surround international organizations’ efforts to classify developing countries. In other projects, I explore various aspects of how individuals in the developing world assess the performance of their governments.
I received my B.A. in Economics and Political Science from Swarthmore College. I am generously supported by the National Science Foundation and by Columbia University.
