I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Wellesley College. In my research, I explore the nexus of economic globalization and political development in low and middle-income countries. I am especially interested in the consequences of financial globalization for authoritarianism, democratization, and capital flight in Russia, Kazakhstan and China.
During the 2014-15 academic year I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Harriman Institute at Columbia University, where I was a member of the Core Project Learning from Transition: From the Local to the Global.
I hold a Ph.D. in Government from Cornell University. Between 2012 and 2014, I was a resident tutor at Cornell's Wolpe Center in Washington, D.C.
