I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
My research focuses broadly on the decision by terrorist organizations to deploy women and children in various roles. Specifically, my dissertation explores the multiple roles, both violent and non-violent, that terrorist organizations assign to female members.
