Casey Brunelle joined the Canadian Army Primary Reserves in 2011, serving as an Infantier until he was accepted into Military Intelligence in 2012, where he continues to work today. In 2015, he completed a full-time placement with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) at United Nations HQ in New York City, specialising in the co-ordination of humanitarian assistance to global crises.
In 2015, Brunelle graduated from the University of Ottawa with an Hon BSocSc in International Development and Globalisation. He has written academically in peer-reviewed textbooks on issues of terrorism and Canada's military experiences in developing countries. In October 2016, he will begin graduate studies at Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge, for the MPhil in International Relations and Politics programme.
Brunelle’s research specialisation focuses on integrating intelligence tradecraft with a human-centric development framework. At Cambridge, he will be working to develop a formal model of predictive strategic intelligence in order to anticipate the assessed inputs, activities, outputs, outcomes, and impacts of factors within conflict zones.
