Originally from Victoria, Andrea holds a BA (Hons) in Political Science from Dalhousie, and an MA in International Affairs from Carleton (NPSIA), with previous studies in English Literature and Classics. Her MA thesis tested a theory of differential mobilization into non-Islamic terrorism, while her undergraduate thesis explored civil-military tension in the Auditor General’s review of defence procurement in Canada. Andrea’s research interests include maritime security, military cultures, civil-military relations, defence policy and procurement, gender in security, and Canadian foreign policy. Her dissertation focusses on Canadian female combat soldiers and the gendered narratives of the Elsie Initiative. Briefly a member of the Royal Naval reserves, Andrea sings alto with the St. George's Church choir, and enjoys using dogs shows and Highland Games as excuses to not answer emails on the weekend. For 2019-2020, Andrea will be a lecturer at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto. She tweets at @ap_lane
