I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Syracuse University.
For 2018-2019, I am a predoctoral Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Security Studies Program.
For 2019-2020, I will be a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs with the Project on Managing the Atom and International Security Program.
I study several topics related to international security, including nuclear strategy and operations 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 emerging 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.
