I am currently a policy intern at Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, where I monitor ethnic conflict and human rights violations in Sudan using satellite imagery (Satellite Sentinel Project). I have recently been commissioned to be a principle editor and research assistant for Luise Druke's book on Mobilization for Refugee Protection, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the 1951 Convention on Human Rights (Luise is a 1981 Nobel Peace Laureate for her service in UNHCR, now over 30 years and also teaches at Leibniz University in Hannover. The book is Peter Lang, forthcoming summer 2012). I am also currently a staff assistant at Harvard College Writing Program, an office that helps Harvard Freshman adjust to writing expectations demanded at the college level. At this position, I support over 40 faculty members. Finally, in the spring of 2012, I’ll be taking on the role of adjunct lecturer of International Relations at Suffolk University, teaching undergraduate political science research methods.  In September, I finished a research assistant position for Associate Dean Sebastian Royo at Suffolk University in compiling an edited collection on Portugal and the European Union since the 2008 recession (forthcoming, Rowland and Little, 2011). Prior to this appointment as an RA in May of 2011, I developed an integrated online database for the US-Russian Chamber of Commerce, New England as a research intern. I am  a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Suffolk University with a Masters degree in International Relations (MSPS program) and a Cum Laude graduate of Lehigh University (May 2009) with a Bachelor's degree in International Relations and minor in Religious Studies/ Arabic. During the course of completing my Bachelor's degree, I worked as a policy intern at the US State Department, Iraq Desk in Washington (summer 2007) with a TS Clearance, and studied modern Turkish politics and Islamic mysticism in Istanbul, Turkey (summer, 2008).  Advice: Write well and save your research and work. You can always revisit later in graduate school
