My research interest is in international relations and U.S. foreign policy. Prior to starting my Ph.D., I worked at The Cohen Group, a strategic consulting firm led by former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Cohen, where I advised clients on U.S. and international politics, as well as security and trade policy. Before joining The Cohen Group, I completed a Master’s degree in international policy at Stanford University. Parallel to my coursework, I served as a case writer for the Leadership Academy for Development at Stanford’s Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law.
