I'm a New York City-based writer and researcher, with a M.A. from CUNY Brooklyn College in Political Science, where I studied political theory. I write about LGBTQ politics, feminism and women, peace and security for publications such as The Dart Society, On The Issues Magazine, Autostraddle and One Green Planet.
As a researcher I focus on gender equality in media and feminist security studies. I began work in the field of women and peace and security by focusing on gender mainstreaming work following the passing of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (SCR RES 1325) with organizations such as the Social Science Research Project (SSRC) and PeaceWomen.
In early 2012 I began consulting with Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) on the 2012 Women Count report assessing implementation of SCR RES 1325 in Nepal and Liberia in partnership with local organizations. In the fall I will be attending the Global Governance and Human Security PhD program at UMass Boston.
