I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Chair of International Relations and International Political Economy at the University of Zurich.
I received my PhD in Government from Georgetown University in 2017, having previously studied political science at Northwestern University (B.A.), and Sciences Po and Fudan University (M.A.). My research explores the performance of and dynamics within international organisations and institutions, especially in financial and environmental regimes. In my dissertation I examined the limits of hegemonic coercion by analysing offshore financial center resistance strategies with respect to the new international tax and transparency regime. My current book project explores state resistance dynamics in domains as varied as protection of endangered species and the prosecution of crimes against humanity.
