I am a full-time doctoral candidate of Statecraft and National Security at the Institute of World Politics (IWP), a private graduate school headed by distinguished scholar-practitioners, in Washington, D.C. My research examines emerging threats in the Indo-Pacific region, with challenges ranging across the conflict continuum. My specific areas of focus reside in U.S.-India strategic relations, geoeconomic statecraft, military strategy, and maritime security. I previously provided extensive research support to the Department of Defense Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies.
I also hold an M.A. in Statecraft and National Security Affairs from IWP, along with a B.A. in International Affairs and B.S. in Criminology from George Mason University.
