I am most excited to work on projects that… promote constructive dialogues through knowledge.

I am looking for partners who can help me… learn from different perspectives and backgrounds and provide a consequential contribution to global nuclear debates.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when I collaborated on education and capacity-building initiatives on global nuclear politics.

Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… are those that integrate interdisciplinary thinking.
