About Me

My Experience

I've worked for six years in the areas of human rights and freedom of expression, including for the Open Society Foundations, as a consultant for UNESCO, a First Look Media Technology Fellow for the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and as a Columbia University Tow Research Fellow on the initiative, Journalism After Snowden.

I've also worked as a freelance journalist at the United Nations in Geneva, as a political correspondent at the Washington State Legislature, and as a strategic communications associate for the firm Hattaway Communications in Washington, DC.

My Education

I am currently a Ph.D. student at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. I have a Master's Degree in International and European Security from the University of Geneva and the Geneva Center for Security Policy, which I completed on a Fulbright Research Fellowship. I have a second Master's Degree in Communication from the University of Pennsylvania.
