I am a political scientist specializing in international political economy (IPE). I broadly examine the politics of international trade and focus on international institutions, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the role of multinational companies (MNCs) in global trade governance.

I obtained my PhD from the University of Antwerp in Belgium with the dissertation titled ‘Overcoming resistance to compliance: Internationalization of production and the politics of WTO dispute settlement’. Previously I completed my MSc by Research degree at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland after receiving my bachelors in Political Science degree from the University of Houston in the US.
