I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with degrees in Economics and History, as well as certificates in Asian Studies and Global Studies with a concentration in Politics and Economy. I have a regional focus on East Asia, but I am more broadly interested in the political economy of developing countries and emerging markets. I have studied Mandarin Chinese and studied abroad in both Beijing, China and Cape Town, South Africa. I wish to pursue a career at the intersection of politics and economics, particularly in the context of emerging markets, but I also wish to add a historical dimension to understand the processes that have created the modern conditions that these developments occur within.
BS Economics, BA History
