Head ShotI am currently a fifth 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 has been published in International Organization and Conflict Management and Peace Science, and you can find my policy commentary in Foreign Affairs, 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.
