Christina Toenshoff

PhD Candidate, Political Science

I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Stanford University, with a focus on International Political Economy. My main research interests are interest group politics, climate and trade policy, and European politics.

In my dissertation, I explore how firms adjust their climate lobbying when they face pressure from consumers and investors. To do so, I draw on a variety of methodological tools, including computational text analysis, survey experiments, and qualitative case studies.  My dissertation work is supported by the Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship.

Prior to coming to Stanford, I completed an MA in International Affairs and International Economics at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University. After my BA, I also spent a year studying Japanese in Fukuoka, Japan.
