Danielle is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Conflict Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where her coursework focuses on the development of sustainable governance in divided societies. She graduated from the College of William & Mary in May 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Government (concentration in International Security). Throughout her undergraduate education, Danielle was involved in both faculty-led and independent research efforts affiliated with various organizations, including USAID and the Brookings Institution. In her final year at the College, Danielle began to focus on state fragility and the role international cooperation and economic development can play in alleviating violent conflict. An area of particular interest is the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, where she published an article discussing the impact of institutional alienation on Hamas’ continued use of violence as a political tool. Most recently, Danielle served as a research assistant for the Fund for Peace and Partnership for Global Security.
