Assistant Professor of Political Science
University of Colorado Boulder
I am a political scientist specializing in the political economy of international migration. My research examines the implications of international migration flows and patterns for global economic integration, including national foreign economic policies, interstate cooperation, and international governance. I also explore how international economic forces shape migration patterns and health outcomes among international migrants. My research has been published or is forthcoming in both political science and interdisciplinary journals including Comparative Political Studies, International Studies Quarterly, and Party Politics.
I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan. Prior to my doctoral education, I received a BA in Economics and Political Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania in May 2010. My research was funded by three distinct grants from the National Science Foundation—the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP), the Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide (GROW) in partnership with the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and the Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants—and the Humane Studies Fellowship.
