I am a PhD candidate at the University of Minnesota in Political Science, a pre-doctoral fellow at the Dickey Center at Dartmouth College, and a former Jennings Randolph Peace Scholar at the United States Institute of Peace, specializing in international relations and methodology. Starting August 2018, I will join the faculty at the Department of Political Science, Indiana University, Bloomington. Within international relations, my research has involved innovative approaches to studying the causes of civil conflict and political violence.
