Professor Owen’s research and teaching focus on international political economy, particularly the intersection between domestic politics and the global economy. The development of global production networks introduces new distributional concerns for labor, and impacts political power of labor. Her current research asks how the internationalization of production through trade and investment affects labor markets, and the conditions under which labor is likely to influence policy outcomes.
Her research has appeared or is forthcoming in International Interactions, The Review of International Organizations, and Political Research Quarterly. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2010 and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University during the 2010-2011 academic year.
