I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate at Yale University, certified to teach International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Quantitative Methods. My research draws on experimental and archival methods to examine the foundations of nuclear deterrence and threats to strategic stability, and my broader interests include identifying sources of civilian support for the use of force and assessments of military capabilities during nuclear, conventional, and unconventional conflicts. I have conducted public opinion and survey research in Iraq, Japan, South Korea, and the United States. Prior to Yale, I served as an officer in the United States Army, deploying to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
I hold an M.A. and M.Phil. in Political Science from Yale University and a B.A. with highest honors in Political Science from Columbia University.
