I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Rice University.
I study how individuals—be they members of rebel groups, governments, or the public at large—make choices within violent conflicts. I use large individual-level historical datasets and experimental research designs to understand how individuals respond to, and participate in, the political violence surrounding them in their daily lives.
My research is published or forthcoming at the American Journal of Political Science, American Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, and International Studies Quarterly, among other venues. Drafts of my published and working papers can be found on my research page and google scholar.
I am also co-founder of the Harvard Experiments Working Group and a two time co-organizer of the Harvard Experimental Political Science Graduate Student Conference.
