I am a doctoral student in the Department of Government at Cornell University. My research focuses on the areas of international security and political economy, particularly global governance and international order transition, conceptions of sovereignty, and economic nationalism.

I have presented at academic conferences including the International Studies Association annual convention, the University of Calgary Centre for Military and Strategic Studies, and the Conference of Defence Associations Institute. I graduated from the University of British Columbia and received my MA in political science from McGill University, where I was a graduate fellow at the Centre for International Peace and Security Studies and served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses on Canadian politics. Before beginning my PhD, I worked at the Institute for Research on Public Policy where I contributed to research on a wide range of policy issues including sick leave and disability benefits, international trade, income inequality, and federalism in Canada.
