I am a Professional Lecturer at George Washington University. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at Washington University in St. Louis and Princeton University, respectively. I completed my Ph.D. in Politics at Princeton. My primary field was international relations, with a substantive focus on environmental policy. I received the 2014 American Political Science Association's Virginia Walsh Award for the best dissertation in Science, Technology, and Environmental Politics. Before then, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornell University, where I completed a senior thesis in two fields, receiving summa cum laude in History and magna cum laude in Government. 

       My research analyzes environmental policy and international institutions. My book, Regulating the Polluters (published by Oxford University Press), explains patterns of regulation on global environmental issues involving different markets. I have studied patterns of cooperation on regional water bodies and have a collaborative experimental project on public views toward fracking in the United States. My earlier research analyzed how policy innovations diffuse across different international environmental regimes, as well as the development of global climate change governance. My work has appeared in Global Environmental PoliticsJournal of Conflict ResolutionReview of Policy ResearchInternational AffairsJournal of Strategic Studies, and Security Studies. My research has been funded by the environmental economics institute Resources for the Future (Washington, DC) and institutions at Princeton University.
