Ryan Weldzius is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance (NCGG) at Princeton University for academic year 2019-2020. His research interests lie in international and comparative political economy, focusing on the distributional consequences of economic integration and the resulting constraints  it places on the political policies of states. His book project, The Chains That Bind: Global Value Chain Integration and Currency Conflict, argues that global production decisions over the previous 25 years have undercut the benefits of running a depreciated exchange rate. The book provides a political explanation for the recent disappearance of currency manipulation as viable strategy for export-led growth. 

​In the fall of 2018 Ryan joined the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis as a Postdoctoral Research Associate for a one-year term. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Los Angeles, M.Sc. in Economics from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, M.A. in Politics from New York University, and B.A. in Political Science from DePaul University. ​In 2013, Ryan interned at the World Trade Organization in Geneva where he was a contributor to the 2014 World Trade Report.
