I am a political scientist at Oxford University (Nuffield College), and a Visiting Fellow at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. Prior to my doctoral studies I was a research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations, where I advised heads of medicines agencies from eleven countries and the European Union on the design of a new trans-governmental organization, the International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities, which launched in 2015. I also served as a Truman-Albright Fellow in the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where I contributed analysis to national demonstrations and evaluations designed to promote economic mobility and self-sufficiency among vulnerable populations. Originally from Montello, WI, I received my M.Phil. from Oxford (Balliol College) in 2012, as a Weidenfeld Scholar, and B.A. from the University of Wisconsin in 2009, graduating with Phi Beta Kappa and Comprehensive Honors, the university's highest degree.
