Greetings! I am a Global Security Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee. I received my Ph. D. from the University of Iowa in 2018, specializing in International Relations and Comparative Politics. I have two major themes in my research. My research interests include international conflict, international security, natural resources, water conflict, and climate change and environmental issue, as well as South Korea's foreign policy and security in East Asia and the Indo-Pacific. I am currently Managing Editor of International Studies Quarterly, the flagship journal of the International Studies Association.
