Comparative Politics



My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative politics and international relations, with a focus on economic policies. I hope to research on how state and non-state actors shape governments’ priorities and behaviors on international trade and finance. With a specific interest in non-democratic countries, I am curious about why certain non-democratic countries are able to effectively cooperate with each other to tackle trans-national issues while others are incapable of making alliances.
