Curriculum Vitae

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Political Science & International Affairs

My substantive research interests lie primarily in civil conflict, its connection to international conflict, and the externalities of conflict such as human rights concerns and refugee flows. I also focus broadly on quantitative research methods with a specialization in spatial analysis. My published work has appeared in Journal of Global Security Studies, Political Research Quarterly, Research & Politics, and Political Science Research and Methods. I have taught International Conflict and Introduction to International Relations at the undergraduate level and have been a teaching assistant for various courses and IR simulations, including Crisis Diplomacy, Reacting to the Past: The French Revolution, and Statecraft.
