< ABOUT ME >

Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at the University of Tokyo. M.A. in Security and Foreign Policy. B.A. in International Studies and Development. Editor-in-chief at Global Politics Review and director of the Association for Social Sciences, Research and Innovation.

I work in the areas of public policy, international security, and computational social science. Currently, I am investigating the intersections between climate change and conflict, trying to identify mechanisms that transpose climate induced uncertainties into security challenges. My research interests include resilience engineering, non-traditional security, adaptive governance, and agent-based modeling.
