Before coming to Harvard, I performed research at Stanford University and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on nuclear politics and other foreign policy issues utilizing a variety of methods, including analyzing historical documents and conducting survey experiments. At Harvard, my intellectual journey has taken me from securities studies topics, to literatures evaluating the role of gender in international relations, and finally to the role that corporations and their stakeholders might play in solving global problems. Currently, my scholarship focuses on corporate policies on climate change mitigation and adaptation. More than anything, I believe that the thesis process should serve you, and not the other way around. As a result, I believe the process should center on what actually sparks your personal and intellectual interests, building in accountability and manageable expectations along the way.
