I'm a PhD candidate in the Political Science Department at the University of Rochester. I'm expected to complete requirements for the doctorate degree by May 2020. I'm interested in various topics in International Political Economy and Quantitative Methods. Here is my current CV.

My dissertation examines the political economy of international trade at various levels, ranging from preferential trade agreeements (PTAs) to the World Trade Organization (WTO). In my three related essays, I explore how domestic politics influence country's trade policies, and examine countries' trade liberalization efforts at the multilateral level. Besides my dissertation, I'm interested in studying trade disputes, foreign investment decisions and economic sanctions at the firm level.
