I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Syracuse University.
For 2017-2018, I am a pre-doctoral fellow for the Carnegie International Politics Scholars Consortium and Network at the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University.
I study several topics related to international security, including nuclear strategy and civil-military relations. My dissertation examines the origins of command and control in regional nuclear powers, as well as the effects of these institutions on crisis behavior. My research has received support from the Smith Richardson Foundation and the Tobin Project.
I hold a master's in political science from Syracuse University, as well as a master's in international affairs from the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
