I teach and conduct research on issues of global political economy, international development, and research methods.
My research focuses on trade and its impacts on sustainable development and governance. I have also published studies on foreign aid and investment. My work is published in the European Journal of International Relations, International Affairs, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of World Business, Policy Sciences, the Review of International Organizations, the Review of International Political Economy, World Development, and other journals.
I teach in the undergraduate, master's, and executive education programs at Thunderbird. My classes include Principles of Global Management, States & Markets in the Global Economy, International Trade and Regional Economic Agreements, and Global Affairs Methods.
