I am a 2018 graduate from Lock Haven University where I earned my B.A. in both International Studies and Political Science as well as minors in Geography and History. These fields of study brought me to my interests in Political Geography that center around border theory and conflict. My Bachelor Capstone focused on the connection of identification and nationalism to political borders. I intend to expand my research to include the impacts that political borders have on discrimination as well as why nations seek statehood and whether or not nation-states are the answer to border conflicts. My regions of expertise currently include parts of Europe and Asia, which is where the inspiration for most of my questions have originated. It is my hope to continue this research through my Master's and on into my Ph.D studies and use that research to influence foreign policy.
