Isabelle Horan recently graduated from Syracuse University with a B.A. in Forensic Science and Psychology and a minor in Anthropology. During her undergraduate education, she completed coursework in areas of pattern analysis, forensic psychology, firearms identification and forensic anthropology. Much of Isabelle’s research centered on the O.S.A.C. standards for forensic investigation which pertain to the legality and efficacy of forensic science practices across the country. Isabelle completed in-depth research on artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, their relationship to law enforcement and the use of these tools for gathering admissible evidence.
Isabelle’s other areas of study in anthropology and psychology have provided her with insights and methods for interpreting human behavior, culture, and communities. Combined with her investigative training, Isabelle’s understanding of social interaction provides her with a unique skill set when approaching communication in all forms, and particularly interaction and community building on digital platforms. As the Digital Operations and Public Relations Intern at Furia Rubel Communications, Isabelle assists with social media campaign strategies and identifies new tools and approaches for marketing digital content.
Isabelle has been an executive assistant to a sustainable fashion brand, running social media accounts, analyzing trends, copywriting, managing an eCommerce website, and building a strong public image. Her most recent job was working at the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University, providing office support for staff and academic support for matriculated student veterans and prospective student veterans.
When not working or studying, Isabelle has volunteered her time with the Smithsonian Transcription Center, the Doylestown Historical Society, The Vera House, Food Recovery Network, We Rise Above the Streets, Meals on Wheels, The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, and the Central New York Girl Scouts.
