I am a PhD Candidate at American University's School of International Service. My dissertation is on the transnational coalition-building of European and North American right-wing populist movements. I also write on social network theory, philosophy of science, and their applications to the study of international relations and contentious politics.
I studied German at Middlebury College Summer Language Schools and social network analysis at the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). I am actively involved in transatlantic scholarly dialogue through the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS).
