Dimitri is a 2021 LLM candidate, and a fellow at the Institute of International Economic Law at the Georgetown University Law Center. His work focuses primarily on international trade law, and U.S. sanctions policy. Before coming to Georgetown, he played soccer at the University of Kentucky, and abroad in Brazil. There, he engaged in countless cross-cultural exchanges, and developed a strong interest in the economics of world trade, and the effects of foreign policy on citizens around the world. These experiences piqued his curiosity in international economic law, and spurred his interest to pursue further studies at Georgetown.
Dimitri holds a B.A., M.A., and J.D. from the University of Kentucky, where he graduated with honors. While at UK, he competed in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot competition in Vienna, Austria. He is most interested in economic issues and their relation to national security, identifying policy space within the WTO framework in order to help developing countries implement sustainable economic trade policies, and closing the economic inequality gaps that have been exacerbated by technology and international trade.
