Duncan Grimm

Former Communications Intern


Duncan Grimm was a CGD communications intern supporting media, event, and web engagement. He earned his bachelors of arts in History at Trinity College, writing his undergraduate thesis on Anglo-American relations during the early years of the Second World War. Duncan studied abroad at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland where he focused on the Scottish global diaspora and evolving counterinsurgency doctrines.

Prior to joining CGD, Duncan worked at communications and public affairs agency Clyde Group where he was involved across diverse education and healthcare accounts leading media outreach efforts. He also previously supported the office of U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and Hartford-based firm McDowell Jewett Communications.

A Connecticut native with New Hampshire roots, Duncan never misses an opportunity to arrange a far-flung hiking trip, or an adventure closer to home in Washington’s museums.
