BIO

I am an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Politics and International Relations, University College Dublin. I am also affiliated as a Research Fellow with the Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction at Dublin City University. I was a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow at the European University Institute from September 2016 to August 2018. I am interested in doing policy-relevant research in the area of political and international affairs. My current project is developing a method to communicate the practical implications of statistical estimates in a more informative way to the general public and policymakers. To this end, I am capitalizing on Bayesian statistics and decision analysis. My publications (single-authored or co-authored) have appeared in journals such as International Interactions, Research & Politics, Cooperation and Conflict, International Politics, the Journal of Development Studies, European Political Science, and Federal Governance. For the full information of my publications, please visit my Google Scholar profile (http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=aGXViVoAAAAJ&hl=en). I teach political science, international relations, East Asian security, quantitative methods, and research design. I like to use an interactive teaching approach, and often run a simulation game that aims to help students understand the complexity of political process. I obtained my PhD from the School of Law and Government at Dublin City University in November 2015. I also received a teaching certificate from the Max Weber Programme at the European University Institute in June 2017.
