Position title: Ph.D. Candidate: International Relations | Comparative Politics
Sujeong Shim’s interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, international organizations, and domestic politics.
Sujeong Shim studies international political economy, with special interests on the International Monetary Fund (IMF), negotiation, public opinion, trade and economic reform. Her dissertation project seeks to answer why international investors react differently to (similar) bailout programs from the IMF. In her dissertation, she finds that international investors’ response to various bailout programs depends on the indebted country’s domestic public opinion. She holds a BA (magna cum laude) in Political Science and Economics from Northwestern University.
