BIO & CV

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 have been selected as one of the members of the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative of the Asia Society for the 2017-18 academic year.

I work on foreign policymaking with regional expertise on East Asia in the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. My ongoing book project, ‘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.

In parallel with the 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 energy, infrastructure, and development aid, with a focus on Iran, Iraq, Israel and the GCC.
