I am a PhD candidate in International Relations at the University of Oxford. My research examines the intersection of finance, regulation, and international political economy. In the past, I have studied the internal politics of multilateral development banks and the corporate governance of international organizations. My current project focuses on the manner in which regulators and private firms cooperate to combat transnational financial crime. 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.
At Oxford, I am a Radcliffe Scholar at University College. My work is associated with the Department of Politics and International Relations and I have previously assisted with teaching at the Blavatnik School of Government.
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 multiple monitorships of global banks conducted on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice (Deferred Prosecution Agreement) and U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (Section 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. I am originally from Southern California, but have long since lost the tan.
