I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University. I obtained a PhD in Political Science in July 2020 from the University of Rochester. I am 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 political coalitions influence countries' trade defensive mechanisms, and further examine countries' trade liberalization efforts at the multilateral level under the WTO. Besides my dissertation, I am interested in trade disputes, foreign investment decisions and economic sanctions, especially at the firm level.
