My research is primarily in the field of security studies, and touches on national security, pedagogy, and gender and popular culture. Most recently, I edited a book about Heroism and Global Politics with Dr. Jennifer Mathers and am studying how police officers are taught about national security and counter-terrorism with Dr. Adam Molnar.

Where available, open-source copies of my publications or pre-publication drafts are available at UWSpace.
