I specialize in U.S. foreign economic policymaking on export-oriented countries of Northeast Asia – China, Japan, and South Korea. I have a specific interest on policy issues surrounding the two Koreas. I am one of the 30 members of the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative selected by the Asia Society for the 2017-18 academic year.

I work on foreign economic policymaking with regional expertise on East Asia and the Middle East. My first book manuscript, ‘Trade & Currency Conflict: Northeast Asian States Responses to US Pressures’, highlights the role of domestic institutions in China, Japan, and South Korea toward their foreign economic policy outcomes.

Envisioning my second book project, I am conducting research projects intended for journal article publications on Northeast Asia’s economic engagements with the Middle East, specifically pertaining to trans-regional transactions in energy, infrastructure, and development aid, with a focus on Iran, Iraq, Israel and countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
