am a national security professional working at the intersection of technology and public policy. Currently, I'm at Facebook working to protect democratic systems from malign actors.
I manage the global threat disruption effort at Facebook, where we are fighting disinformation designed to undermine democratic systems, free expression, and authentic communities.
Previously, I was a civil servant at the Department of Defense. During this time, I served as a Director for Intelligence at the National Security Council, where I led the U.S. Government's efforts to detect and counter state-led efforts to interfere in democratic systems and elections both at home and around the world. Prior to joining the NSC, I served in a variety of roles at the Department of Defense, where I focused on organized crime, corruption, and Russian political and foreign policy strategy.
While at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, I contributed to the New York Times best-seller Putin’s Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia?, which uncovered a web of dark money fueling Russia's elite and was banned in Russia and deemed too controversial for sale in the UK.
