About/CV

I am a recent Ph.D. graduate in political science (international studies) and specializing in security studies and modeling and simulation. I also hold a BA in political science, German minor, and an MA in international studies.

With computational and formal modeling being my usual modi operandi, my areas of expertise are in nuclear security and radical political protest movements.
