Biography

Jason is from South Windsor, Connecticut. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Hartford in 2000 and a master's degree from the University of Connecticut in 2005. Upon receiving the latter, he began teaching interdisciplinary and political science courses at multiple schools in the Greater Hartford area. During his time as an instructor, he also conducted research on transnational revolutionary organizations, covert action, and American foreign policy. Some of his findings about these topics later appeared in Comparative Strategy, The Journal of Strategic Security, and other publications.

Jason started working on his thesis at Nottingham in January 2020. The purpose of his project is to examine the performances of American trained armies in developing nations. With information from advisor field reports and other primary documents, he intends to ascertain what factors enable fledgling forces to carry out the tasks that U.S. combat troops had previously performed. If they are identified, policymakers will know the conditions under which security transfers are most likely to succeed.
