I am a PhD candidate in public policy at Harvard University, where I am a pre-doctoral research fellow in the International Security Program at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, a graduate student associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and an affiliate of the Institute of Quantitative Social Science.

I research the politics of international law, focusing on the consequences of states’ decisions to violate, contest, or withdraw from treaties. My research on this topic has been published in Foreign Affairs, Perspectives on Politics, and the Journal of Global Security Studies.

Before beginning my doctoral studies, I received a Master of Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, was a fellow in Harvard's Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, served with the Peace Corps in Morocco, fought forest fires in the Sawtooth National Forest, and worked for public policy research organizations in Sri Lanka, Israel, Georgia, and Egypt.
