I am an interdisciplinary political economist whose current research focuses on contemporary unconventional monetary policy, central bank signals, and the interface between economic institutions and markets.
I write and speak frequently about a broad range of issues related to political economy, including economic policy, monetary policy, health policy, political behavior, elections and campaigns, constitutional law, and the commercial space sector. Methodologically, I have expertise in the quantitative analysis of textual 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, the Royal Geographical Society, and a STEM Ambassador. 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 currently split my time between London, New York, and Boston.
