I’m a Ph.D. student in public policy at the University of Texas at Austin. My current research is at the intersection of climate policy, security, and development, with a special regional focus on the Gulf monarchies.

I am also interested in research workflows in the social sciences. I study the tools and methods—mostly FOSS—used in each stage of knowledge creation through individual and collaborative authorship.
