I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University and a Non-Resident Fellow at the Modern War Institute at West Point. For the 2017-2018 academic year, I will be a Stanton Junior Faculty Fellow in the Security Studies Program at MIT.

I received my PhD from the Department of Political Science at Columbia University in 2016.

Prior to undertaking my Ph.D. studies, I worked as a Research Associate for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. I have also held research positions at the Brookings Institution, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

I work on multinational military interventions, military effectiveness, and alliance politics. My book project, Fighting Friends, explains why states adopt different command and control structures in coalition wars. I also have projects looking at the evolution of NATO’s Command Structure and Force Structure.

I have written commentary for the Washington Post, Los Angeles TimesBoston Globe, National Interest, Middle East TimesWorld Politics Review, and War on the Rocks.

I received an M.A. (Honors) from Georgetown University’s Security Studies Program (SSP) and a B.A. (Distinction) in Political Studies from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

I am originally from Copenhagen, Denmark.
