So far, she has traveled extensively in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia, and hopes to keep traveling to new places in the future. In the fall of 2015, she began work on her Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University and she plans to focus her dissertation research on the relationships between climate change and conflict.
