Welcome! I'm an Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY) where I teach a broad range of courses in International Relations. In all of my courses, I aim to develop students' critical thinking and global perspective. My research interests span the Indo-Pacific, alliance politics, international institutions, and race and racism in both the study and practice of international relations.
My background is in Economics (B.A.), Regional Studies-East Asia (M.A.), and Government (M.A. and Ph.D.) from Harvard University. I previously taught at Wellesley College as a Visiting Lecturer and Harvard University as a Teaching Fellow. My research has been supported by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and Harvard Experiments Working Group at Harvard and by the Social Science Summer Research Program and Provost's Faculty Research Award at Wellesley.
