Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Political Science & International Affairs
After graduating from Miami University, I am translating life-long interests in Geography, History, and Politics into a career in academia.
I graduated from both high school and Miami with academic honors and memberships in national honor societies. From Miami, I earned both Magna cum Laude and membership in Phi Beta Kappa. During high school, I earned the right to be called an Eagle Scout. I have translated my love of geography into two study abroad opportunities, one summer in Italy and a semester in Luxembourg, and the chance to teach English as a second language to Chinese university students. I interned in Washington D.C. for the House Foreign Affairs Committee during the summer of 2010 as a part of Miami’s well-known Inside Washington Program. As an undergraduate, I learned to play the bagpipes and have continued to practice that skill.
