International cooperation, institutional stability, state-firm interactions in the global economy, and political methodology.


What brings about international cooperation, and how can it be sustained in difficult times? International interactions around the globe are shaped by institutional efforts to facilitate preferable outcomes, but the background conditions that brought about initial cooperation can change. Some of my most recent research focuses on these scenarios, where actors may hold incentives to disrupt or undermine the workings of beneficial regimes, long-term considerations aren't sufficiently salient, or the cost of eroding an institution are uncertain.
