PhD Candidate, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
I am a PhD candidate at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I specialize in International Relations and Political Methodology. I pose three questions: 1) what are the consequences of dysfunctional borders and their settlement on the margins of trade; 2) which commodities are disproportionately impacted by dysfunctional border regimes due to the intensity with which they rely on cross-border information networks; 3) under what conditions do economic actors re-establish cross-border economic ties following the settlement of a border.
I earned my A.B. in Political Science from Bryn Mawr College in May 2013 and my M.A. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in May 2017.
