A native of Philadelphia, I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Economics from Swarthmore College and a PhD from Yale in Sociology, where my focus was on political institution building and democratic transitions in Europe.
I came to Singapore in 2012 to head Wheelock College and oversaw academic affairs and operations and also taught in the graduate programme. This led to me being appointed to a governmental advisory sub-committee on professional development and leadership. Prior to relocating to Asia, I spent most of my career at Harvard University and most recently was the Executive Director of the university’s Centre for European Studies.
