Background

I joined GW's PhD program in 2008 and am pursuing a major in International Relations and a minor in Public Policy. My primary research interests include constructivist approaches in International Relations, international organizations, and economic diplomacy. I wrote my Master's thesis at The London School of Economics, entitled "A Common Culture of Economic Diplomacy," focusing on the normative and cultural dynamics of the WTO. Currently, I work as a Research Specialist at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. I am also proud to have served in the U.S. Army for 7 years.
