Dr Julia Gray joined the LSE International Relations Department as Assistant Professor in September 2015. She introduces herself here:
I received a PhD in political science from the University of California, Los Angeles; an MSc with distinction in International Political Economy from the London School of Economics; and a BA summa cum laude from Amherst College. My research centers on international economic relations and economic organizations in emerging markets. Specifically, I focus on international organizations and reputations, and on how and whether states and bureaucracies in international agreements implement their mandates.
My book The Company States Keep: International Economic Organizations and Investor Perceptions in Emerging Markets was published in 2013 by Cambridge University Press and was awarded the 2013 Lepgold Book Prize for the best book published in international relations.
In 2013-2014, I was a visiting scholar at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University. I am currently working on a second book manuscript on implementation and adaptation in international economic organizations over time.
