I am a PhD candidate in Political Science specializing in international relations and research methods at George Washington University. I am also an Adjunct Researcher at RAND and was invited to be both a National Cybersecurity Fellow and a Future of War Fellow in the International Security Program at New America. Previously, I was selected as a 2015 and 2016 RAND Summer Associate, worked as a Research Associate at The Mershon Center for International Security Studies, and as a Political Risk Consultant. 

I study issues relating to the intersection of international security and technology,  especially counter-norm activity, offensive social media operations, and the military value of cyber capabilities. My dissertation examines how states strategically deny and disrupt global national security norms and networks.

I hold a Masters in Political Science from George Washington University, and a Bachelors in Political Science, Philosophy, and International Studies from The Ohio State University.
