I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at Princeton. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. My primary field was international relations, with a substantive focus on environmental policy. I received the 2014 American Political Science Association Virginia Walsh Award for the best dissertation in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy. Before then, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornell University in May 2006, where I completed a senior thesis in two fields, receiving summa cum laude in History and magna cum laude in Government.
My research analyzes environmental policy and international institutions. My book project explains the form of international environmental regulation. I explore patterns of regulation on global environmental issues (e.g., climate change, ozone layer depletion, mercury emissions, biodiversity) with different market concentrations. My collaborative research explores how the institutional landscape of international environmental cooperation shapes negotiated institutional settlements. It also examines business perspectives on environmental regulations and specific policy designs for promoting clean energy technology. My work has appeared in Review of Policy Research, International Affairs, Journal of Strategic Studies, and Security Studies.
