I am a Political Science Ph.D. student and Grotius Research Scholar at the University of Michigan, where I focus on international relations and international law. In December 2016, I’ll start at the University of Virginia as a Research Assistant Professor of Law. My research interests include how institutions impact cooperation and conflict among states. I’m especially interested in relationships between domestic institutional structure and international behavior. Before coming to Michigan, I practiced transnational, and government enforcement litigation; served as law clerk for a federal appellate judge, and taught courses on international law and contracts at Georgetown University Law Center.
