Zachary N Einerson – 2017

Zachary N EinersonZachary N Einerson, a native of Fort Collins, Colorado, has called many places around the world home. Now home is wherever he and his wife are able to be together; currently that is St Andrews, Scotland.

Zac has dedicated the past nearly two decades to the promotion and pursuit of education. For nearly ten years after completing a BA in History, second major in Political Science, at Colorado State University, he worked in the field of international education presenting students the opportunity to internationalize their education. Taking his own advice, Zac left his career to further his own international education in Scotland.

At the University of St Andrews, Zac successfully completed a Master of Letters in Middle East and Central Asian Security Studies in 2013 and a Master of Letters in Iranian Studies with distinction in the dissertation in 2014. To assuage his desire for continued academic advancement and to secure necessary language requirements for his future PhD research, he moved to Iran in 2015 to study Persian language.

In September 2016, he began his PhD in Iranian Studies at the University of St Andrews researching the history of modern sports in Iran.
