I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Security Studies and Teaching Assistant at the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs at the University of Central Florida.
As a doctoral candidate, I investigate how vulnerable communities can better prepare for, respond to, and recovery from crises and disasters. I adopt a multi-discipline approach that combines political science, public policy, and security studies. I examine what implications military humanitarian interventionism, homeland security priorities, intelligence gathering, governing institution structures, and electoral competition have on emergency management capabilities.
