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.
In 2018-19, I will be a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University. Beginning in Fall 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Wesleyan University.
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.
