I am an interdisciplinary political economist whose interests span across a variety of fields and methodologies. My current research is on unconventional monetary policy, central bank signals, and the interface between economic institutions and markets in the United Kingdom and United States.
I write and speak frequently about a broad range of issues including monetary policy and economics, health policy and economics, political economic behavior, elections and campaigns, constitutional law, and the political economics of the commercial space sector. Methodologically, I have deep expertise in the quantitative analysis of textual big data.
I earned my BA in Economics, Political Science & Philosophy (with honors) from New York University, my MSc in Political Theory (with distinction) and my PhD in Political Science & Political Economy from The London School of Economics & Political Science. In addition, I have attended specialist certificate courses at The Hague Academy of International Law, the EUI's Academy of European Law, and the School of Advanced Study's Institute of Advanced Legal Studies.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Society of Arts, and the Royal Geographical Society. I have previously been a Fellow of the American Institute for Economic Research, the People for the American Way Foundation, and an A.T. Kearney Scholar.
I was born in Boston and currently reside in London, where I serve as a STEM Ambassador to encourage and empower students to pursue STEM education and careers in order to tackle the world's greatest challenges.
