I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU's Wagner School of Public Service, as part of a university-wide cohort selected by the Provost.
My research lies at the intersection of comparative behavior and international politics. I study how the politics of identity affects the success and survival of democracy in East Asia and other contentious contexts. Specifically, I am interested in the ethical power of groups to shape democratic participation and policy, through norms or cultural scripts.
I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University, M.P.P. from the Harvard Kennedy School, and B.A. from Stanford University.
