Madison was an intern with SIPRI's Arms and Military Expenditure Programme. She is assisting the team with collecting data in projects relating to the defence sector and space, and SIPRI's Top 100 Arms-producing and Military Services Companies.

She is currently an International Business Master’s student at the Universidad de Salamanca.
