Research: 

My research agenda focuses on Gender and Security issues addressed primarily through feminist political economy and feminist security studies lenses. I am interested in the macroeconomic and political forces that drive negative outcomes for women in the world; particularly, within the topics of human trafficking, foreign policy choices, conflict, and sexual violence and how gender roles form and inform human experiences within those research areas.
