I am currently 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 book project builds upon archival and original interview data with political and military elites to explain the origins of command and control in regional nuclear powers.
I have previously held fellowships at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where I was a predoctoral Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow affiliated with the Security Studies Program, and Johns Hopkins University, where I was a predoctoral fellow with the Carnegie International Politics Scholars Consortium and Network (IPSCON) affiliated with the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). My research has also received support from the Smith Richardson Foundation and the Tobin Project, among others.
I hold a Ph.D. and 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.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
