I am Assistant Professor of Political Science and Asian Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. My research addresses the politics of globalization and development. I specialize in three areas of international and comparative political economy: multinational production and governance, the political economy of foreign direct investment inflows, and emerging-market multinational corporations. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of PoliticsInternational Studies Quarterly, Comparative Politics, 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 (in residence at 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.
