Curriculum Vitae

Isheika has BS from Palm Beach Atlantic University in Florida, and MSs from the Sun Yat-Sen University (PRC) and KDI School of Public Policy and Management (South Korea). She was a recipient of the Chinese Government Scholarship (2014 - 2015) and the Korean Government Scholarship (2015 - 2018). Her research sits at the intersection of international political economy and international institutions. She has studied how liberal institutionalism shaped Chinese domestic policy decisions in the 1980s-90s, including the role of multi-lateral organizations like the WTO in marketing and institutionalizing new norms in China. She has also researched US-Korea trade negotiations to expose how asymmetrical negotiations weaken cooperation. At Notre Dame, she plans to explore the intersection of US public opinion and US foreign policy.
