I am a graduate student at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, obtaining my degree in International Policy and Development with a specialization in Conflict Resolution and Social Justice. I am a California native but have spent around 6 years living abroad in the United Kingdom. Most recently, I have been working with Search for Common Ground in the Digital Peacebuilding sphere and have worked with myriad country teams on Social Media Monitoring and Listening projects.
