About me

Jacklyn’s research focusses on nuclear weapons, foreign nuclear deployments, alliance politics, and domestic sources of security policy. Previously, she was a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow in the MIT Security Studies Program and an International Relations Department Fellow at LSE. She received her PhD in International Relations from LSE. Her thesis examined why states renege on institutionalized alliance commitments despite the incentives to cooperate, using Canada’s nuclear sharing commitments to NATO and NORAD during the Cold War as a case study. She completed her MPhil in International Relations at the University of Oxford and her BA in Political Science at McGill University.
