I am a PhD candidate and sociologist at UC Berkeley.

I have also been a fellow at the Institute for Global Change, the Berkeley Center for the Study of Law and Society, and the Institute of International Studies.

In a prior life, I also served as Managing Editor and Editor-at-Large for the magazine The European. Sometimes I still write for publications like Foreign Policy, the New Statesman, the Wall Street Journal, and Open Democracy, or for institutions like the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung and Chatham House.
