I am Assistant Professor of Political Science and Asian Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. My research focuses on the politics of globalization and development. In particular, my work addresses three related topics: multinational production and governance, the political economy of foreign direct investment flows, and emerging-market multinational corporations. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Politics, International Studies Quarterly, and Research & Politics.
I hold an M.A. degree in East Asian Studies from Yale University and a Ph.D. degree in Political Science from Columbia University. Prior to joining Penn State, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program (Harvard University). During the 2013-2014 academic year, I was an Associate Visiting Research Scholar at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, Princeton University.
