Hi, and thanks for visiting my site. I received my doctorate from the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia, with a focus on international relations, in 2017. My bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Studies is from the University of Washington, and my master’s degree from the Committee on International Relations at the University of Chicago. I am currently a visiting assistant professor at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR. Previously, I held the same position for three years at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA, where I was a finalist for 2018-19 Faculty of the Year by CNU’s Student Affairs Committee.

My research and teaching interests involve international relations, American foreign policy, the Middle East, and security studies.
