I am a Ph.D. candidate in Politics at Princeton University.  My research focuses on international institutions, with particular attention to why countries build multiple, overlapping institutions in the same issue area and how institutional proliferation influences state bargaining and cooperation.  My paper "Deference and Hierarchy in International Regime Complexes" is forthcoming in International Organization.  Other research interests include counterterrorism policy, international political economy, network analysis, and text analysis.

Prior to Princeton, I worked at the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security as a Presidential Management Fellow.  I received an M.A. in International Policy Studies from Stanford University and a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of Georgia.
