I am a PhD Candidate in International Relations at the Berlin Graduate School for Global and Transregional Studies, Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, and a Pre-doctoral Research Fellow with the Global Economic Governance Initiative, Boston University Global Development Policy Center.

My research focuses on the political economy of international organizations (e.g., examining the effects and decisions of the IMF), public health & inequality, and leadership in times of crisis. I am particularly interested in studying the micro-foundations of state action in global governance using text-as-data, regression analysis, and expert interviews.

Currently, I am pursuing the following research questions:

  • What is the role of deliberation in decision-making of international organizations?
  • How do states pursue their preferences in governing bodies of international organizations?
  • How do leaders and organizations respond to crises?
