I am a PhD student in Political Science at The University of Chicago. My research interests and projects include international intervention in conflict, proxy warfare, security cooperation, NATO, and alliance politics. My dissertation research is on third party support for proxies in intra-state conflict with aid, arms, and advisors. The dissertation uses a mixed methods approach with a game theoretic model, analysis of novel quantitative data on third party support for proxies, and case studies.
I earned a BS from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., with a concentration in international security and a minor in Russia and East European Studies.
