With a B.A. from Wellesley College in Political Science and Italian and an M.A. from Central European University in Gender Studies, I am a social scientist by training that has specialized in power structures and development methods.

Now I use this knowledge to influence public opinion. Ask me about how I did this during my Fulbright Fellowship in Albania.

AI Technology Will Enhance Human Interaction, Not Replace It

The impact of artificial intelligence on today’s business structures and company cultures is often minimized to fantastic headlines claiming that a dystopian future awaits us all, when the reality is much less daunting — companies leveraging AI today are able to concentrate resources on customer experience (instead of technical labor), making businesses more responsive to clients. The future of AI in business is as an enhancer to human efforts, not a substitute in itself...

International Health Insurance Plans

International health insurance plans range significantly in how much coverage is offered. While some plans can be practically as comprehensive as the average U.S.-based insurance plan, others provide policyholders with significantly less coverage than ACA compliance standards recommend.

Costs for international health insurance policies...

How Khaleesi Became a Statistic and the Patriarchy Won

Every Game of Thrones fan has come up with their own poignant list of all the reasons they are personally disappointed in the final season of the epic series by now. And why wouldn’t you — so many of the show’s narrative arches seemed to end mid-peak with a crash into a big, icy wall of nothingness. That doesn’t mean there is nothing to appreciate about the bleak finale, though. In fact, such an anticlimactic end was one of the best ways to demonstrate how the world really works...
