My research revolves around identifying and statistically modeling issues in International Political Economy (IPE). In Political Science, I have experience as a Graduate Student Researcher in IPE projects on the topics of migration and international law, as well as in modeling iterated noncooperative games; In Statistics, I have experience in designing neural networks and predictive ensemble models, previously serving as a consultant to Google People Operations and The Conference Board in data science and analytics.  My field paper seeks to understand how the socioeconomic consequences of price shocks in commodity markets could lead to militarized interstate disputes.
