"Under the Shadows of Swords" examined how four terrorist milieus (anarchist, anti-colonialist, New Left, and Salafi jihadist) exploited the strategy of Propaganda of the Deed. She was able to trace its evolution and migration across the globe.

"Blood and Fire" examined the use of propaganda by terrorist groups, comparing Narodnaya Volya and Al'Qaeda to speculate the possibility of an intellectual tradition for terrorist communication.

With a focus on modern history and archaeology, this degree spanned terrorism, forensics, political science, nationalism studies, modern military history, and global affairs.
