I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. My academic interests are in comparative and international political economy with the emphasis on developing countries. My research focuses on the effects of globalization on domestic politics, especially on the origins and trajectories of macroeconomic policies and their distributional implications. I draw empirical evidence from Southeast Asia. Methodologically, I am interested in political-economic time series and formal models. Prior to my graduate study in political science, I hold an M.A. in Economics from Duke University and a B.A. in Economics from Chulalongkorn University in Thailand.
