A.M. Candidate in Regional Studies—REECA
Kevin Doyle's interest in the region was first sparked when he traveled to Gatchina, Russia on the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship in high school. Since then, he has been fascinated by Russia, Eurasia, and international relations. Kevin received his bachelor’s degree in Russian and international relations from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. While at Dickinson, Kevin also spent time living and studying in Moscow, Russia; Baku, Azerbaijan; and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The time abroad allowed him to make strides in the Russian language and to begin studying Azerbaijani and Kyrgyz. In the spring of 2015, Kevin received the Thomas R. Pickering Fellowship, which is helping to prepare him for a career as a Foreign Service Officer in the US State Department. Kevin is interested in Russian foreign policy and diplomatic challenges across the region, especially Russia-NATO relations and the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis.
