In receiving a Master’s of Historical Research at the University of Stirling, a Postgraduate Certificate from the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) based at the University of Maryland at College Park, and a baccalaureate degree from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, I have completed nearly a decade of specialized research in history, political science, and social psychology.

As a first-year PhD student at Kent, my research is focused on the process of radicalization in Revolutionary America and the mechanisms of mobilization utilized by Patriot organizations.  Through my involvement in the Age of Revolution project, I have been allowed the opportunity to examine the development of revolutionary ideologies throughout history as well as the pathways of pursuing extremist aims, ultimately strengthening my knowledge on the radical nature of revolutions.  I attended the university’s recent trip to Waterloo, and I am currently working as a podcaster and a Culture24 collaborator.
