Welcome!  I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale University.  My research examines how states cooperate, bargain, and distribute power in international institutions.  I am particularly interested in how the proliferation of multiple, overlapping institutions affects international cooperation.  Some of my work on the subject has appeared in International Organization.  I teach courses on international law and cooperation, global economic governance, and international organizations.

Prior to starting at Yale, I completed a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University (2018), where I was a recipient of the Fellowship of Woodrow Wilson Scholars. I received an B.A. in International Affairs from the University of Georgia (2008), an M.A. in International Policy Studies from Stanford University (2010), and worked in the Departments of Homeland Security and State from 2010-2012.
