Global Governance • Philanthropy • Health Security

Welcome! I am currently a Research Fellow at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy and on the Pandemics and Borders research team, as well as a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Northeastern University. I hold additional affiliations as a Research Associate at the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM) and as a Visiting Researcher at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.

My research focuses on global governance, international organizations, health security, and philanthropy. My primary research agenda examines how private foundations engage with global health institutions during crises. Other research areas include U.S. foreign policy, humanitarian response, and climate security. My research and commentary on these topics has appeared or is forthcoming in outlets including International Studies Review, Global Health Governance, the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage, and CNN International.

Previously, I worked as an editor for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a researcher for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and managed curriculum development for online courses at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Department of Government. Beyond my research, I have taught extensively on topics related to international relations, public policy, and research methods. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Economics from the College of William & Mary and a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts University.
