I am currently a Lecturer in Public Policy & Administration at SOAS, University of London.  I received my Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University in March 2019. 

My research has been published or is forthcoming in academic journals such as the Socio-Economic Review, Comparative Political Studies, Regulation & Governance and European Union Politics

I have been a Visiting Research Fellow at the WZB Social Science Center in Berlin, the Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies in Paris, and the Center for European Policy Studies in Brussels.

I have extensive experience working as a policy practitioner in both domestic and international contexts, 

and remain an active participant in contemporary public policy debates.


In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking and volunteering as an election observer with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
