Nuole (Lula) Chen, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

I am a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm interested in international relations and nuclear security, collective decision-making (especially as it pertains to foreign policy), and agent-based models. Prior to my PhD, I was a program manager at Sister Cities International in Washington DC, working on trilateral development projects between US, Chinese, and African cities. That experience has driven my interest in exploring how individuals reach collective decisions. I have a BSFS and MA in International Affairs from Georgetown University and enjoy traveling, playing basketball, and napping.
