IMG_3121 (1)Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research and teaching interests are in the field of International Relations.

My current research project examines the political and institutional determinants of refugee protection in industrialized countries, with a particular focus on the domestic institutions responsible for determining refugee status. I have broad research interests in foreign policy, political economy, humanitarianism, human rights, immigration, and border security.
