Educational Background

  • B.A. and M.A. in Political Science from Boston University, where I received the Best Thesis Award and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.



I am a PhD Candidate in the Government department at Cornell University, specializing in international security. Broadly, my doctoral research examines the proliferation of emerging technologies and its impact on the probability and nature of conflict and cooperation in the international system. This focus has led me to engage a broad selection of scholarship across science and technology studies, history, international organizations, and law. This past summer, I was a RAND Summer Associate in the National Security Research Division working on the national and international security implications of emerging technologies. Currently, I am an adjunct at RAND where I will be continuing my research efforts in the division. Prior to my PhD studies at Cornell University, I worked at the Atlantic Council (South Asia Center) and completed a graduate fellowship at the Nonproliferation Education and Research Center (NEREC) housed at KAIST University in South Korea. My previous work included research on nuclear and cyber security, military expenditures, and trade in East and South Asia.
