My primary research explores the structure of the international political economy and how economic interdependencies contribute to the formation, evolution, and manifestations of national power. I have also researched and published on topics more broadly related to political economy, international relations and foreign policy. My work is primarily quantitative in nature, employing a diversity of methodological approaches including machine learning, text analysis, and network methods. My work has appeared in journals such as the European Journal of International RelationsBusiness and Politics, Economics and Politics, and Comparative Politics.
