Halley is the finance coordinator for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, where she supports the finance director and the president and CEO with research and program organization and conducts focused research on nuclear energy. Her undergraduate research centered on nuclear deterrence and asymmetric warfare theory, with a focus on the Korean Peninsula and the Pacific Theater more broadly.

While there, she supported special education students in their English language acquisition journey.
I am most excited to work on projects that… expect collaboration and outside-the-box thinking to address existential issues.
I am looking for partners that can… help me learn and grow as a communicator, researcher, and problem solver.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when I worked with undergraduate students to help them understand the import of nuclear threats.
Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… connect experts and nonexperts to learn from one another and to understand pressing world issues.
