Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS)



I obtained a double BA with Distinction in Economics and International Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019. As an undergraduate, I had an interest in EU enlargement policy and political economy, and wrote an undergraduate thesis examining the accession potential of several EU candidate countries in the Western Balkans region.

Prior to coming to Cambridge, I worked as an international trade policy analyst in Dublin, Ireland, where I worked with both private and public bodies in the realm of commercial relations and trade policy navigation.
