Cristina Bodea

Bodea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University. Bodea joined the MSU faculty in 2006, after earning a PhD degree from the University of Rochester (2006) and following a post doctoral research fellowship at Princeton University. From 2007 to 2009 she has been on leave from Michigan State, working as an Economist at the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, Germany. Bodea uses game theory and econometric methods in her work and is substantively interested in issues in the fields of international and comparative political economy, as well as political conflict and democratization. More specifically, current interests include reputation building in exchange rate policy, central bank independence and government spending, the fiscal policy of developing countries, as well as civil war, coups, and low intensity violence as alternative manifestations of domestic conflict. Her work has been published or is forthcoming at the Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, International Organization, European Journal of Political Economy, Public Choice and Economic and Politics. She also has working papers published by the World Bank and the European Central Bank.

Andrew Kerner

Andrew Kerner is an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University and earned his Phd in Political Science from Emory University, where he focused on the politics of corporate governance and securities law reform. His current research considers the politics of finance broadly, with particular foci on foreign investment, multinational production, investor-state dispute settlement, financialization, and the political consequences of pension reform. His articles appear in International Organization, British Journal of Political Science, and the Review of International Organizations, among other journals. He teaches a variety of courses in international relations and comparative politics.

Shahryar Minhas

Shahryar Minhas is an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University and received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University in 2016. Generally, his research program stems from his training in international relations and political methodology with a focus on how to study social systems in which the actions of actors are interdependent. His methodological focus falls under the heading of network science, but his two specific areas of interest are: how can we do inference in the presence of interdependent observations and how can we build on network properties to learn about the underlying structure of a social system. His research has appeared in the Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, Political Analysis, and Journal of Conflict Resolution, among other journals.

Ha Eun Choi

Ha Eun Choi joined the Ph.D. program in the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University in the fall of 2018. Ha Eun’s research interests lie in the fields of international political economy and international organization. She is particularly interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the dynamic interactions between domestic politics, international economic forces and the behavior of international organizations. Ha Eun graduated from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, South Korea with a B.A. in German and Political Science and an M.A. in Political Science. During her study in 2016, she also worked as a program assistant in UNESCO Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding.
