ABOUT ME

I hold a BA in International Studies and Development, and an MA in Security and Foreign Policy. I act as editor-in-chief for the academic journal Global Politics Review and I direct the Association for Social Sciences, Research and Innovation

Whereas my research focuses on international relations and conflict resolution, my research methodology is interdisciplinary at large. At graduate school I acquired a strong interest in computational social science (CSS) which eventually led me to study complex systems theory and agent-based modeling (ABM). At the same time, I also gained a proficient level of competency with the programming language called NetLogo. Since then, I have been merging my programming skills with my knowledge of political science and developmental studies to follow novel research paths and revise IR scholarship.
