#Introductions Hello! I'm the president of a hybrid academic for-profit on Long Island that does public education, professional development, and consulting, focusing on international relations/country studies. My PhD was a quantitative and qualitative network analysis of international security cooperation, so interested in all of the above as well as data analysis and networks in particular.
