Research Interests


Anne’s interests are focused on the intersection of conventional weapons and nuclear policy. In recent work she has considered the concept of entanglement and discussed whether the way the phenomena is researched today takes into consideration past cases and examples. Anne has also spent time researching hypersonic weapons and considering their potential impact on the future of international security. She hopes to consider this research and is currently assessing how condensed decision timelines impact the choices made by policy makers.
