Paul is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service majoring in International Political Economy. He grew up in Larchmont, NY, a suburb north of New York City. He is a French-American dual citizen and attended bilingual school through 8th grade. Professor Joshi’s proseminar, “Development in India,” gave him a taste of the kinds of insights research and data analysis can offer into the politics of financial liberalization and the tensions between growth and development in emerging economies. Throughout his freshman year and over the summer, he worked with Professor Nita Rudra on a number of projects examining the dynamics between domestic politics and global trade policy in countries of different income levels. This year, he is excited to start working with Professor Joanna Lewis on a project examining Chinese foreign energy investment in the context of the One Belt, One Road initiative. Outside of MURFs, he is a member of the Men’s Ultimate Frisbee team, a Vice President in the Georgetown University Student Investment Fund, and frequent customer of the Grilling Society. He is a fan of classic film and impressionist art, and he remains trapped in a love-hate relationship with the New York Knicks.
