My research is on the change in counterterrorism measures from nations after they experience massive terror attacks. I compare and contrast the United States and Spain in Bureaucratic Institutions and their Foreign Relations and look into the impact of these differences on domestic settings. I worked with Dr. Evans to continue my research through this semester and presented it at the Northeastern Political Science Association’s yearly conference.
The freedom that this program gave me was the most valuable aspect for me. I truly appreciated the chance to be in total control of my own research. I really learned a lot about myself and where my interests lie in my field and I was able to fine-tune this research to what I was interested in.
The most challenging part for me was trying to be organized. I had to create my own schedule and make sure I was caught up on reading and making sure I was using my time efficiently. However, learning how to be so organized has definitely help me stay on top of my classes through this semester.
