After graduating with an International Relations degree from Lehigh, I moved to Washington, DC. I have been working at the Stimson Center, a nonpartisan think tank, ever since. I am a Research Associate with the Southwest Asia/Gulf project, focusing primarily on security in the Persian Gulf, Iran-GCC relations, the Iranian nuclear issue and Iraq. Additionally, I am currently serving as Vice President for Global Operations for Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (www.ypfp.org), a professional organization dedicated to fostering the next generation of foreign policy leaders. All Lehigh IR graduates should join!
