She is also a senior editor of Lawfare as well as a visiting fellow at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School’s National Security Institute.

Reiss joined R Street in September 2017 from the office of U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, for whom she was also a senior national security fellow. Prior to that, she was co-manager of the William P. Clements Jr. Papers Project, a collaboration between the University of Texas at Austin’s Clements Center for National Security and its Briscoe Center for American History. Earlier in her career, she was a research associate at the Hoover Institution.

Johnson School of Public Affairs, a master’s degree in law in international criminal justice and armed conflict from the University of Nottingham School of Law, and a bachelor’s degree in human biology from Stanford University.

“Great Decisions” is a series of foreign policy discussions that has been hosted by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA) since the 1950s. This is the first time that Hood is hosting the kick-off lecture for the series. This initiative is part of an Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Languages (UISFL) grant that Hood received from the U.S. Department of Education.
