What do you like most about Christendom?

I love that we can talk about our faith in the classroom. That’s very unique. i also really like that the core classes are focused on Political Theory. That’s also very unique.
Perhaps most importantly, though, Christendom feels like a community, more than any other university I know.

What are your areas of expertise and/or research?

My early research is almost entirely focused on intelligence collection and foreign policy decision making. I’ve been branching out into areas of Catholic foreign policy lately.
