He has studied, taught, and conducted research on issues of local governance and development in South Korea, Thailand, and India on grants and fellowships from the Freeman-Asia Foundation, FLAS, Fulbright-IIE, the Center for South Asia, and the UW-Madison International Institute. During the summer of 2009, he will conduct research and contribute to policy as an intern for the National Institute of Urban Affairs in New Delhi in order to gain a deeper understanding of urban poverty and governance in India.
