Gail’s doctoral research seeks to explain what caused variations in the degree of state intervention in the oil supply in major Asian net oil-importing countries between 1993 and 2013, while the international oil market had already been functioning. It also examines the implications of continued state intervention in relations among nations and oil market governance in the region and beyond.
Gail is interested in understanding issues intersecting international economics, politics, and security. She received a Master of Art in Diplomacy and Military Studies with distinction and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the Hawaii Pacific University.
