I am a second year Ph.D. student studying Political Science with emphasis on International relations.  My research explores the role that military alliances play in altering the behavior of countries within the international system. Specifically, I am interested in the ways in which states respond to external security threats and rivalries. 

Prior to starting my doctoral work at UK, I earned both my BS and MA in Political Science from the University of Houston. My MA research focused on the use of foreign aid as a strategic policy tool.

I am currently a Teaching Assistant (with Dr. Dan Morey) for Fall 2017 in PS230 (Intro to International Relations). My office hours are Tuesday and Thursday 2-3pm.
