I am currently the Coordinator of Strategic Retention at the University of Vermont. In this role, I lead strategic retention initiatives across the University and help drive retention strategy through data-driven decision-making and action. I am also a non-resident fellow with Defense Priorities, with my expertise in international security, military occupation, armed intervention, and regime change. My commentary focuses on issues related to U.S. foreign policy and international security issue.
Previously I was the Assistant Director and Senior Research Associate with the Notre Dame International Security Center at the University of Notre Dame, a postdoctoral fellow at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and a U.S. Foreign Policy and International Security Fellow at Dartmouth College’s Dickey Center for International Understanding.
I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame, where I was a predoctoral fellow with NDISC, served as a research fellow for the Varieties of Democracy project, and was a Dissertation Year Fellow with the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.
