It’s been a while since I’ve written anything here, but after South America my adventures have not been nearly as blog-worthy. I recently graduated college, and while I loved my time at UC Berkeley, I’m ready to jump into the real world.
I spent my last semester working almost exclusively on my senior thesis. It started as a historical investigation into the Cuban missile crisis and the Montreal protocol, but grew into a much larger project on risk perception, decision making and international politics. The Huffington Post recently published my abstract as a blog entry, so I’m posting a .pdf of the final draft here for anyone to peruse.
