"Research I did at UCR prepared me for my career"

At University College Roosevelt I majored in Social Science with tracks in International Relations and Sociology, and was always interested in technology. Thanks to the interdisciplinary Liberal Arts & Sciences, I pooled academic resources and did research on Cyberwarfare. This project was my first introduction to the field of Cybersecurity and was a major milestone in preparing me for my career in this field. After UCR, I went on to a Master’s of Science in Crisis and Security Management at Leiden University and worked at the Centre for Terrorism and Counter Terrorism, UNDP in New York City, the HCSS in The Hague, and FGV’s Center for Technology and Society in Rio de Janeiro. Currently, I work for Capgemini Invent as a Senior Manager in Cyber Security.
