I'm a PhD candidate in Political Science at the Ohio State University, specializing in International Relations and Political Psychology. I use survey experiments and archival research in my dissertation to develop a theoretical approach to analyzing performances in international politics by foregrounding the audience dimension, focusing on rapprochement summitry in three cases: US-China (1972), South Korea-Japan (1983-4), and US-Vietnam (2000). My other research interests include ontological security, public diplomacy, foreign policy analysis, visual politics, and East Asia International Relations.
