I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of California, San Diego, where I am a Jacobs Fellow. I am a Junior Scholar at the Carnegie International Policy Scholar Consortium and Network (IPSCON), 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, the U.S.-China relationship, and international security. I have been a graduate student researcher for the Center for Peace and Security Studies (cPASS), the 21st Century China Center, and the 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.
