I am a postdoctoral research associate at the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC), which is based at the School of Global Policy and Strategy at the University of California, San Diego. I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University in 2018 and subsequently held a fellowship in the Max Weber Program for Postdoctoral Studies at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy.

My research interests are in grand strategy and great power politics in periods ranging from ancient Greece to the Cold War to the present day. I am especially interested in the political economy of national security and U.S. grand strategy in Europe and East Asia. My research has been published in the Journal of Strategic Studies, the Journal of East Asian Studies, and the Journal of Chinese Political Science.
