Hi, I am studying international political economy with particular interests on the IMF, public opinion, international financial market and economic reform. My dissertation examines how public opinion in borrower countries shapes their IMF programs and affects international market participants' responses to the IMF programs. My other works look at the IMF's dual roles, an international banker and economic reformer, and the nexus between monetary and financial policies and the use of trade barriers. I graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern University in 2012 with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics.
