Her research is published in leading journals and has been covered by major publications including the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Financial Times, Washington Post, and the New York Times. She has partnered with leading institutions including the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the UN, and the IMF, to bring research to practice; she currently serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of International Economics, Review of World Economics, Economics and Politics, and the World Trade Review; and she is former Chair and a Founding Board member for the national non-partisan, non-profit National Economic Education Delegation.
