I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Political Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania in May, 2010. My research has been funded by Rackham Merit Fellowship and National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship.
I study international and comparative political economy (IPE/CPE) with a particular focus on the political economy of factor mobility. The overarching theme of my research interests is economic globalization. The cross-border movements of goods, capital, and people in an integrated world motivate my research questions. More specifically, I analyze the political implications of international factor mobility through the lens of exchange rate fluctuations, to see how different actors maximize their utility under mobile capital and open trade.
