Department of Politics and International Relations
I recently completed a Ph.D. in International Relations at the University of Oxford and am now working in the private sector. Here you can find a portfolio of my academic work and teaching experience.
My research focuses on global economic governance, with particular emphasis on the prevention of cross-border financial crime. I have also conducted extensive research on multilateral development banks and the corporate governance of international organizations. This work has been featured in Regulation & Governance, The Review of International Organizations, the World Economic Forum, and edited volumes published by Oxford University Press.
Prior to the doctorate, I worked at a London-based consultancy and specialized in advising clients on their obligations to prevent, detect, and report suspicious trading activity. I have also worked on monitorships of global banks conducted on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice (Deferred Prosecution Agreement) and U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (S. 166 Skilled Person Reviews).
I completed my M.Phil in International Relations at the University of Oxford (St. John's College) and my B.A. in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While an undergraduate, I interned in the United Kingdom's House of Lords and the Parliament of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Though originally from Southern California, I have long-since lost the tan.
