New_PropicI am currently a researcher at the German Development Institute in Bonn, Germany working on the German Government-sponsored “Reducing Root Causes of Forced Displacement and Managing Migration” project. My research areas include international development, peace and conflict processes, and the politics of digital technology. I’ve recently worked with the International Security and Development Center, where I am an affiliated researcher, on an FAO-funded project on the political economy of food security and conflict, and was a Visiting Scholar at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution during the 2015-16 academic year. During my PhD I was a Fulbright Public Policy Fellow, advising the Samoan Ministry of Communications and Information Technology on disaster response and crisis prevention policy.

Outside academia I have consulted for the World Bank, and worked with TechChange Inc and the U.S. Institute of Peace on peacebuilding, training and technology programs.

I earned my PhD at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in August 2016, and have a MA and BA from American University.
