Alyssa Goessler

Brumley Senior Fellow |

Alyssa Goessler is a graduate student pursuing a dual-degree in Global Policy and Middle Eastern Studies at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. Prior to joining the UT community, Alyssa worked in foreign policy in New York City—first, at the Mission of Jordan to the United Nations, and thereafter in the Executive Office of the Council on Foreign Relations. Alyssa’s research aims to increase transparency, predictability, and accountability in space by employing natural language processing to better understand Arab state behaviors in space. This research will ideally help to decrease the likelihood of conflict resulting from a misunderstanding of state behaviors in space and will aid in the creation of international norms in space by providing further clarity on the intentions and motivations of MENA nation-states in space.
