I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Political Science, Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the University at Albany, State University of New York. I study comparative politics and international relations, with a regional focus on East Asia. Prior to coming to Albany, I received my BA in Political Science from the University of Southern Maine and my MA in International Affairs from American University’s School of International Service.
