Brief Bio


As a lecturer in Political Science at the University of Dayton, I teach courses in International Political Economy, Globalization, and Development. I am passionate about helping students to draw the connections between the global economy and their daily lives.

My research explores how global financial pressures, such as foreign direct investment, affect human rights conditions. I also maintain interests in power dynamics and decision making processes in international organizations. Prior to coming to Dayton I was a senior researcher at the Social Science Center Berlin (WZB) and a postdoctoral fellow at the European University Institute in Florence.

Other research interests: institutional design, political methodology, international law and human rights.
