About the Speaker:

Patricia (Tricia) DeGennaro is a senior social scientist and geopolitical risk analyst supporting US Central Commands Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) monitoring ongoing actions against the rising threat posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria. DeGennaro is also a member of the Information Advantage and Strategic Influence Learning Pathway Team at Joint Special Operations University and an adjunct faculty at the US Army War College where she teaches a course called Cognitive Maneuver under the Center for Strategic Leadership.

Previously, she supported the US Army’s Training and Doctrine Command Operational Environment Training Support Center. DeGennaro was an adjunct professor at New York University’s Department of International Affairs for almost fifteen years teaching courses on international security policy, civilian and military affairs, and terrorism. She has been a Senior Fellow at the World Policy Institute and a Visiting Scholar at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.

DeGennaro capitalizes on over twenty years of experience as an academic, military advisor and practitioner in international security. Much of her work focuses on the information environment, countering terrorism and violent extremism, and transitioning nations from war. She has spent considerable time in Iraq and Afghanistan on information operations, security, civilian and military affairs, provincial governance, capacity building, and joint interagency, intergovernmental and multinational coordination.

During her tenure, she has consulted with USAID, Department of State, and Senior Military Officers as well as the Asia Foundation, Director of National Intelligence Office, Department of Homeland Security, The Conference Board, World Bank, Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee chaired by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and several organizations that support the Middle East peace process. She also spent four years in Albania as a Small and Medium Enterprise volunteer with the Peace Corps and, later, as a contractor with US Agency for International Development. Regionally, DeGennaro continues to focus on the Balkans, the Middle East and South Asia where she travels often.

DeGennaro has published several articles on US foreign policy and national security topics. Her focus is to encourage a grand strategy for an integrated international policy that looks beyond war and the use of force. She is often an expert commentator for CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, Fox News, BBC and various nationally and internationally syndicated media outlets.

DeGennaro holds an MBA in International Trade and Finance from George Washington University and an MPA in International Security and Conflict Resolution from Harvard University. She speaks fluent Albanian and has a basic knowledge of Italian, Arabic and Dari.
