I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornell University. I completed a senior thesis in two fields, receiving summa cum laude in History and magna cum laude in Government. Between September 2007 and June 2013, I completed a Ph.D. in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. My primary field was international relations, with a substantive focus on environmental policy. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at Princeton.
My research is on environmental policy and international institutions. My book project analyzes 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 institutional diffusion and focal points in international environmental negotiations. It also examines business perspectives on environmental regulations and specific policy designs and institutional designs for promoting clean energy technology.
