Anthony concentrates in Global Politics and Security at MSFS. As an international development professional, he is most interested in exploring the nexus between development and global security, stability operations, and political transitions. He is a strong proponent of experimentation to find creative ways to solve lingering issues in the development/humanitarian space. One of his goals is to change the way the United States does business in this sector.
Prior to MSFS, Anthony worked at an international development consultancy in Sierra Leone, where he collaborated with clients including USAID, UNDP, and WFP. He also served as a Princeton in Africa Fellow and development consultant in Malawi. Before moving abroad, Anthony helped further USAID’s humanitarian mission at the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) in Washington.
Anthony holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in East Asian Studies and Economics from the University of Arizona, where he graduated magna cum laude and first in his class in the Chinese Studies sub-major. He lived and studied in China for over a year, sponsored in part by the U.S. State Department’s Critical Language Scholarship program.
Anthony was born in Chandler, Arizona. He has worked and traveled extensively through Africa, Asia, and Europe. He speaks Mandarin Chinese
"I chose MSFS because I was seeking to practice hard skills and study thematic issues to round out my professional experience. I think MSFS has the right balance of practitioners who have “been there and done that” and researchers on the cutting edge of their fields. These are exactly the kinds of people I want to work with during my time here.”
