I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of California, San Diego. For the summer of 2022, I was a Summer Associate with the RAND Center for Analysis of U.S. Grand Strategy, and for the 2020-2021 academic year I was a Hans J. Morgenthau Fellow (non-resident) at the Notre Dame International Security Center. My research and teaching interests include congressional-executive relations in U.S. foreign policy, constitutional law, the U.S.-China relationship, and international security. I have been a graduate student researcher for the Center for Peace and Security Studies (cPASS) and the 21st Century China Center, and am currently a research affiliate at the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC). My work has been published by International Studies Quarterly, The National Interest, and Lawfare, and I hold a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Chinese from the University of California, Davis, and a J.D.—with a specialization in International and Comparative Law—from the UCLA School of Law.

I am currently on the job market for the 2022-23 cycle. You can download the current draft of my job market paper here, and my CV here.
