I am a Ph.D. candidate in the UCLA Department of Political Science. My research is on the politics of environmental cooperation, with a focus on the implications of economic globalization for international climate politics. I am pursuing an M.S. degree in the UCLA Department of Statistics alongside my Ph.D. in political science. Before UCLA, I earned an M.Sc. in Comparative Politics at The London School of Economics and Political Science, worked as a Colet Fellow at St. Paul's School in London, and earned my B.A. in Political Science and Spanish (with a certificate in Film & Video) from Duke University.
