I am an Assistant Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics, specialising in international and comparative political economy.
I primarily study the political economy of climate change and decarbonisation. I have associated research interests in global economic governance and the politics of gender, ethnicity, and race. My work on these topics is published in the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, and World Politics, with commentary in The Washington Post.
My research has received the American Political Science Association’s Fiona McGillivray Award for Best Paper in Political Economy, Sage Paper Prize for Best Paper in Comparative Politics, Award for Best Paper in Democracy and Autocracy, and Virginia M. Walsh Award for Best Dissertation in Science, Technology, and Environmental Politics, as well as the IPUMS USA Research Award for Best Published Research. It has been funded by the Center for Science and Society, Charles Koch Foundation, Columbia Experimental Laboratory for Social Sciences, Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability, Endeavor Foundation, Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, President’s Council of Cornell Women, and President’s Global Innovation Fund.
I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization & Governance at Princeton University prior to joining LSE. I hold a PhD in political science from Columbia University and BA in international relations from the University of Southern California.
