Michael A. Gavin
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. My PhD is from the University of Toronto and I study the international political economy of finance. My dissertation, "Financial safety nets in emerging market economies," examined the politics that explains why, in our current era of financial globalization, international financial safety nets remain perpetually weak while domestic financial safety nets continue to grow stronger. My research has been published or will soon appear in The Review of International Organizations and Environmental and Resource Economics.
