I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Syracuse University.
For 2017-2018, I am a predoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs, Carnegie International Politics Scholars Consortium and Network.
For 2018-2019, I will be a predoctoral Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Security Studies Program.
I study several topics related to international security, including nuclear strategy and civil-military relations. My dissertation builds upon original interview data with political and military elites to explain the origins of command and control in regional nuclear powers. 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.
