I am a PhD candidate in Public Policy and Sociology at the University of Michigan. My research interests lie primarily at the intersection of foreign policy, development, and social change. More information about my dissertation research can be found here, and a copy of my academic CV can be found here.
Prior to the start of my PhD program, I spent the better part of a decade living and working in four countries of the Former Soviet Union, first as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan and Russia, and later managing the country offices of DC-based non-profits in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. I have demonstrable skills most notably in administration, project design and management, program evaluation, and quantitative and qualitative research. I speak Russian (professionally fluent), Spanish (intermediate), and French (beginner). More information about my professional experience and qualifications can be found here.
I live in Geneva, Switzerland, and you can reach me here.
