Audrey Redmond graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2014 with a Master of Arts in Social Science with an emphasis in Political Science. She received her Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs, with an emphasis in Diplomatic and International Service, from Kennesaw State University in 2012. Audrey is originally from Milledgeville, Georgia. Her academic memberships include the American Conference for Irish Studies, as well as the International Studies Association with additional membership to the Active Learning in International Affairs and Feminist Theory and Gender Studies sections.

She enrolled in the INCM PhD Program at Kennesaw State University because she would like to continue learning and researching global issues. Audrey’s career goal is to become an instructor of International Affairs courses, and her research interests include political identity formation, roles of women in politics, digital conflict, and Irish studies. Audrey is a native English speaker and also speaks conversational and written Spanish.

She currently serves as a research assistant in the INCM program and is investigating the role of digital technology in conflict. Prior to enrolling in the INCM PhD program, Audrey worked for two years in the First-Year Experience (FYE) department at Georgia Southern University as a graduate assistant. During her time at Georgia Southern she taught multiple FYE courses, trained student leaders to serve as teaching assistants, and developed course content on the D2L platform. She competed in the National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference as a delegate from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in the UN-HABITAT committee. Audrey worked as an intern with Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA), member of the Senate Committee on foreign relations, to gain a greater understanding of the role that Congress plays in shaping foreign policy. Audrey also founded the ONE Campaign on Kennesaw State University's campus to engage students to take an active role in the fight against global poverty.
