I am a doctoral candidate in political science at the University of North Texas. My dissertation examines the role homeland conflict behavior has on its diaspora’s security and how this influences diaspora perceptions and behavior toward their homeland.


I have degrees from Trinity College in international studies with a Middle East focus (B.A. 2010) and Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya (M.A. 2013) in government with a specialization in conflict resolution and diplomacy. I expect to complete my Ph.D. at the University of North Texas in 2019
