About Me

Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, I received my bachelors in Political Science with a focus of International Relations in May 2015 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. In fall of 2015, I began the SGPP doctoral program while concurrently pursuing a masters in Government & Public Policy, which I completed in 2018. My ongoing work includes projects that focus on human security conditions (food, health, human rights), peace, regions, and status-driven processes with Thomas VolgyPaul Bezerra, and William R. Thompson. I also spend time with local animal rescues, hang out with my own pets, and enjoy live music.
