Bio: 

I specialize in the area of international security, specifically examining the relationship between emergent weapons technologies and international laws and norms surrounding the use of military force. My research explores the legal and normative implications of remote warfare, such as the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in counter-terrorism operations, as well as civil society’s response to these post-9/11 national security policies.
