Head ShotI am currently a fourth year PhD candidate at the University of Pennsylvania concentrating on International Relations. My research focuses on reputation for resolve, gender, threat credibility, drones, weapons of mass destruction, and military technology. My academic research is forthcoming in International Organization, and you can find my policy commentary in the Washington Post, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and Defense One.

Before coming to Penn, I graduated from the George Washington University summa cum laude with a double major in Economics and Political Science. During that time, I interned with the State Department and the United States Senate.
