Academic Work

I’ll just come out and say it: I’m a research nerd. Whether it’s through long-form newspaper reporting or a formal essay, nothing piques my curiosity like digging into a complex subject. This is a landing page for some of the international relations, sociology and psychology work I completed as an undergraduate. First is my capstone project for “Wicked Problems in U.S. National Security,” followed by a solo project for “Politics of National Security Budgeting.” (Not all my work is that heavy. Scroll down for more.)
