Nicholas Armstrong was recently hired by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) as a senior director of research and policy. The IVMF leverages the intellectual, programmatic and human capital resources of higher education in support of the post-service life course of the nation’s veterans and military families.
Prior to Armstrong’s position at IVMF, he served as a fellow for the Centre for Security Governance, a non-profit, non-partisan think tank dedicated to the study of security transitions in fragile, failed and conflict-affected states, a process also known as security sector reform.
Armstrong graduated from the Maxwell School in 2008 with a master’s degree in public administration. He later came back to Maxwell in 2014 to complete his doctorate in social science.
