I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Public Affairs and Citizenship.


I research the links between international and domestic politics via social norms and ideologies. I investigate these dynamics within the realms of gender politics, international organizations, and conflict. I focus both on the second image, that is, how internal dynamics of actors influence international affairs; and on the second image reversed, namely, how international affairs impact actors’ internal dynamics.

My research is published in World Politics and Security Studies, and my book project is under contract with Cambridge University Press. 

I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Loyola University Chicago, specializing in International Relations and Comparative Politics. Prior to joining Syracuse, I taught at New York University Abu Dhabi, the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, and at Loyola University.
