As Managing Director of the Lauder Institute, I oversee a joint-degree program at the University of Pennsylvania: MBA/MA in International Studies & JD/MA in International Studies. I supervise daily operations in areas from recruiting and admissions to graduation, from business administration to external affairs, and from research to outreach programs. I began at the Lauder Institute in 2008 as the Director of Lauder’s Language and Culture Programs. Thanks to these positions, I have gained extensive experience program building and immersion education in locations around the world.

I serve as the primary academic advisor and thus work closely with the Wharton Graduate Division and the Penn School of Arts & Sciences in planning and executing the Institute’s programs and activities.


Ph.D. and MA from Stanford University
B.A. from Dartmouth College
