I am a PhD Candidate in International Relations and Comparative Politics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. My expected graduation date is July 2022.
My research is focused on Civil-Military Relations. In particular, I want to understand how the government, the public, and the military talk to and about each other and what consequences these conversations have for society, the state, and international security.
Currently, I am a Research Assistant for the Minerva-funded project "Maritime Law Enforcement in the Indo-Pacific: Building Capacity to Confront Militia Groups and Maritime Crime" under Lead Investigator Brandon Prins.
