Research Assistants

PGS relies on a small group of hardworking interns to serve as research assistants. Our current team includes:

Patrick Foley researches transnational governance systems and national commitments made through the Nuclear Security Summit process. He is a student at American University’s School of International Service with a concentration in International Development Policy with a minor in Economics. He has worked in the offices of political figures, both elected and appointed, on the state and federal level. His past research projects have revolved around analyzing the official discourses of transnational governance systems. When he is not conducting qualitative analysis he teaches bachata, salsa, and merengue lessons on campus.

Katrina Stevenson is a junior at Colgate University studying International Relations and Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies. On campus, she is involved in the Model United Nations club and works extensively with the Colgate Admission’s Office. Through Model United Nations, she has held various executive board positions and traveled both domestically and internationally. In Model United Nations, she has represented various countries while discussing issues ranging from Iran’s nuclear program, nuclear nonproliferation, and the Arab Spring. When she isn’t traveling with Model United Nations, she can be found in the Admission’s office working on communication projects and training new volunteers. She is excited to intern with the Partnership for Global Security and pursue her interests in nuclear energy and nuclear security.
