I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Government at Harvard University. My research focuses on the political economy of law and international organizations with an additional emphasis on developing new, applied quantitative methodologies. My dissertation examines the behavior of attitudinal and strategic factors that affect the decision-making arbitrators in investor-state dispute tribunals and the resulting implications for firms and states involved in investment arbitration. My other work aims to develop improved approaches for measurement in social science settings and for estimating valid causal effects in observational and experimental designs.
