Trade, not War
- Welcome! I am an assistant professor of international political economy at the University of Groningen. I am broadly interested in the security implications of economic interdependence. I am also interested in different tools of coercion and economic statecraft, major power competition, and contemporary Chinese foreign policy. My current research (funded by the Austrian Science Fund) studies how trade enriches and empowers states as well as how this relationship between commerce and power affects interstate relations. My studies have been published in Journal of Peace Research, Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Interactions, and Journal of East Asian Studies. In terms of teaching, I have taught courses across different fields, including Introduction to International Relations, Chinese Foreign Policy, American Foreign Policy, American National Government, Interstate Conflict, and Economic Statecraft.
