I am a Political Science Ph.D. Candidate at Florida State University.
Broadly, my research is in international political economy, foreign policy, and the domestic politics of international relations. More specifically, my research answers questions that fall into two main themes:
Understanding what drives public support for foreign aid provisions
Understanding how donor nations use foreign aid to achieve domestic and foreign policy objectives, increase their international status, and enhance their economic standing.
To answer these questions, I employ a range of advanced methods, including survey experiments, instrumental variables, and network analysis. My research interests also extend to teaching and pedagogy.
I won Teacher of the Year from the FSU Political Science Department during the 2021-2022 academic year. I teach classes on American Foreign Policy, International Organizations, and American National Government.
