That sounds like very carefully crafted bullshit. Just tell us where you went to college. There is zero risk in revealing your identity with that information. You’re completely anonymous here. Let’s start with undergrad.I need to keep my professional career separate from my online presence.
For a few reasons:
1- I don’t want anyone to misconstrue my postings or positions on topics here as posting on behalf of my organization or the Navy for that matter.
2- My position is tied to diplomatic channels and I work extensively with foreign governments and our US department of state so I don’t want any information out regarding my personal information when I travel overseas (I travel extensively). Last thing I need is when I’m in an Embassy is someone asking me my handle on air warriors.
3- I am paranoid about online presence following the Russian Troll farm thing of 2016 and I do a lot of research on .CN sites and foreign gov sites. That’s why I’m always behind a VPN.
I hope these make sense and I’m happy to clarify any of these points.
i have an undergrad in International Relations and a graduate degree in Sociology. I wrote my Masters thesis on the Counter Insurgency doctrine in Afghanistan and Iraq.
My current field of study is quantitative research on security, transnational Crime, and conflicts within countries and how to best address these.
Primarily involves large amount of data collection, scoring it, making it tabular, and then running calculations. And then analysis.
