In addition to my research and teaching, I also engage with the wider community in order to spread the insights beyond my campus and beyond academia. Please see below for my outreach work.


I work as Graduate Coordinator and Web Manager for the Network for a New Political Economy (N2PE), an interdisciplinary network of faculty and students launched at the University of California, Berkeley that aims to rethink political economy and develop and alternative to the neoliberal paradigm.

In my work for the Network, I help to organize, announce, and run events with faculty and practitioners around the world as well as working with Steve Vogel to launch the Designated Emphasis in Political Economy at Berkeley, a PhD minor program that allows students to build interdisciplinary skills in Political Economy.

Outreach Talk

As part of the ORIAS Speakers Bureau, I offer a 45 minute presentation on “Welfare” and “Capitalism” geared toward 8-12th grade and community college audiences.

This talk was free to book due to generous funding by the Institute of European Studies. Unfortunately, funding has been exhausted for the current year.  I encourage you to find out more about the ORIAS Speakers Bureau at the link above or use this direct booking link to request one of the talks still available this year.

If you would like to book me as a guest speaker with external funding, please contact me to discuss details
