I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Government at Harvard University and a Graduate Student Associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. My research focuses on state building, state capacity, and economic development with a regional focus on the Middle East and North Africa.
From 2010 until 2014, I taught in the Social Sciences Department at the United States Military Academy and worked in the Combating Terrorism Center. Prior to West Point, I completed a Master's degree in International Affairs at Columbia University's School of International and Political Affairs, and received a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from Tufts University.
