Editorial Staff

Tamara Evdokimova

– Editor In Chief

Tamara (or Tammy to avoid awkward mispronunciations) is a junior in the SFS majoring in International History and minoring in French and Diplomatic Studies. Born and raised in the eternal Russian winter, she is interested in studying Vladimir Putin’s shenanigans on the international stage and their impact on the European Union. The rare moments that she is not in the Caravel office, you’ll likely find her watching historical drama on Netflix, reading depressing Russian novels, or making silly Photoshop collages.




Sarah Bothner

– Copy Chief

Sarah is a junior in the MSB who, if she had the choice, would major in about eight different subjects. However, as this is not an option, she is double majoring in Finance and Operations & Information Management. She has a passion for 80s music, skiing, and black coffee. She hopes to one day be fluent in Spanish, an accomplished yogi, and to retire in Europe with her many future dogs and her enormous future yacht.




Christopher Stein

– Copy Chief

Chris is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service planning to study International Political Economy. From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he is a self-proclaimed foodie. You can often see him in Washington DC trying to find palatable pizza. Chris is a politics and news junkie who enjoys reading and writing vastly more than economics homework. He studies Mandarin Chinese and hopes to study abroad in Hangzhou, Taipei, or Shanghai.




Julia Rhodes

– Editor, The Anchor

Julia is a senior in the School of Foreign Service majoring in Culture and Politics. Originally from Delaware, she discovered a North Korean advocacy network in her home state. After learning more, Julia developed an interest in analyzing the political settlements and historical developments of East Asia. Julia has interned for Senator Coons, Leader Pelosi, and Vice President Biden. She eagerly awaits the day when Delaware will take over the world. (mwahaha)




Gabriel Gorre

– Editor, The Anchor

Gabriel is a senior in the School of Foreign Service, studying Science, Technology, and International Affairs and pursuing a diplomacy certificate. On the Caravel, he is a co-editor for the Anchor, as well as a part of the Compass. Outside of the Caravel, Gabriel is a member of the fencing team, a student researcher in the STIA department and Center for Security Studies, and a passionate follower of the Dallas Cowboys (despite impact of the latter on his emotional well-being).




David Lim

– Editor, Indo-Asia-Pacific

David is a senior/first-year Masters student in the School of Foreign Service pursuing a major in International Politics and a certificate in Asian Studies. He was born in Arlington, but grew up most of his life in Korea where he attended the same international school for 11 years. He joined the Caravel after completing his two years of military service with the U.S. Eighth Army and works as a research assistant for the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy. He openly encourages Jack Bauer to run for the presidency in 2020.




Josh Chang

– Editor, Indo-Asia-Pacific

Josh Chang is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service poised to study International Politics and minor in Spanish and Latin American Studies. When not manning the sails of the Caravel, he can be found watching and critiquing films, editing Wikipedia articles, and conquering the world (in the game of Risk). Josh considers himself the Georgetown resident “Armchair Historian,” and invites fellow Hoyas to talk about history over cups of Corp Coffee near the enlightening flames of the HSFC fireplace.




Caroline Schauder

– Editor, Indo-Asia-Pacific

Caroline Schauder is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service from Charlotte, North Carolina. After living in Pune, India two summers ago, she developed an interest in Hindi and Southeast Asian studies. Called a grandmother by many, she is an avid knitter and tea connoisseur.





Joshua Haney

– Editor, Eastern Europe & Russia

Josh is sophomore in the School of Foreign Service, majoring in International History. He grew up as an Air Force brat, and has lived in nine states, which makes saying where he’s from sound like a grocery list. He became interested in Eastern Europe and Russia after spontaneously deciding to study Russian as a foreign language, without any actual knowledge of the language beforehand. When not struggling through the interminable complexities of Russian grammar, he plays board games and reads up on bits of historical information of questionable value.




Molly Dunlap

– Editor, Eastern Europe & Russia


Molly is a rising sophomore in the School of Foreign Service majoring in International Political Economy, minoring in Chinese, and pursuing a certificate in Justice and Peace Studies. As a D.C. native, she is passionate about politics, both domestic and international. In her free time, Molly enjoys dj-ing at Georgetown’s WGTB and writing short stories. In the future, Molly hopes to go to law school and eventually work in human and civil rights litigation.





Kyle Tillotson

– Editor, Latin American & the Caribbean 

Kyle is a senior in the School of Foreign Service majoring in International Political Economy and minoring in Spanish. When he first came to Georgetown, Kyle was drawn to studying the consequences of Latin American populism and found the Caravel to be a natural fit. Besides the Caravel, Kyle is involved on campus with International Relations Club and Delta Phi Epsilon Professional Foreign Service Fraternity. In his free time, Kyle can be found watching american football and (poorly) playing guitar and ukulele.




Bryce Couch

– Editor, Latin America & the Caribbean 

Bryce is a junior in the School of Foreign Service.  He is studying International Politics and hopes to pursue a career in international law.  Spending time exploring Buenos Aires and the Argentinian countryside sparked his interest in Latin America’s culture, and he specifically focuses on the effects of counter-terrorism and drug trafficking.  When not working on The Caravel, Bryce is an Olympic enthusiast, Netflix-oholic, and Snapchat filter creator extraordinaire.






Preetham Chappada

– Editor, Middle East & Central Asia

Preetham is a junior in the School of Foreign Service studying Science, Technology, and International Affairs. He is considering a focus in security and space studies. He loves to cook but doesn’t have a kitchen, so he watches the Food Network instead. He was born and raised in Massachusetts, and hopes to visit Outer Space.






Timothy Coan

– Editor, Middle East & Central Asia

Tim is a sophomore in the SFS majoring in Regional and Comparative Studies with a minor in Russian. From Baltimore, Maryland, Tim has a love for the Maryland state flag and is often spotted wearing the flag around campus. When he is not working for the Caravel, you can find Tim aggressively recruiting future Hoyas with GAAP or cheering on the basketball team at the Capital One Center.



Jonathan Dörnhofer

– Editor, North & Sub-Saharan Africa 

Jonathan is a senior in the School of Foreign Service studying International Politics with a certificate in African Studies. He is most interested in the political and electoral systems of African states, as well as their collective and individual relations with foreign countries. Hailing from Southeastern Germany, he can’t really remember how he first became fascinated by Africa, but he hopes to live and work on the continent in the future. When not working on the Caravel, he’s probably cultivating his unreasonably extensive obsession with the culture, politics, and history of Namibia.




Jessica Hickle

– Editor, North & Sub-Saharan Africa 

Jessica is a senior in the SFS studying International Politics, French, and African Studies. She is from New Hampshire (#LiveFreeOrDie) but most recently became a permanent resident of Tanzania where she worked on education policy research this summer. In her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, and eating. Usually in that order.
