I'm an Associate Professor and Associate Dean at the Robertson School of Government at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  A native of Schenectady, New York, I received my BA in Russian from Wellesley College, an MPhil in Russian and East European Studies from Oxford University and a PhD in Political Science at the University of Michigan.  I'm also a former US Foreign Service Officer and I've served in The Netherlands, Russia, and Bulgaria. 

I am particularly interested in the politics of technology and cyberwarfare.  I have served as an External Research Associate at the US Army War College.  I was also a Fulbright Scholar at Durham University's Institute for Advanced Study in the UK. 

I'm an active member of the International Studies Association, the Association of Computing Machinery, and Women in Cybersecurity.
