Brandon Greenblatt is a second-year MPP student at the Jackson School of Global Affairs focused on the nexus of climate change and international security. His studies concentrate on environmental resiliency, climate adaptation, and stabilization policy, with a regional emphasis on Sub-Saharan Africa. As a graduate student at Yale, Brandon was a summer intern with the Department of Defense’s Stabilization and Peacekeeping Policy office, where he helped the DoD integrate climate considerations into its implementation of the Global Fragility Act. Brandon also spent his first year at Jackson interning with the State Department’s Regional Environment Office at U.S. Embassy Fiji. Before coming to Yale, Brandon served as a Global Threats Officer at the State Department’s Overseas Security Advisory Council, where he coordinated the passage of threat information to U.S. private sector organizations operating in Sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia. Brandon also worked as a contractor at the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center, processing nominations of Known or Suspected Terrorists to the Terrorist Screening Database – colloquially known as ‘the watchlist.’ Brandon graduated cum laude from Georgetown University in 2018, majoring in Science, Technology, and International Affairs. After Yale, Brandon hopes to pursue a career with the U.S. federal government working on global climate, energy, and security policy.
