I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Rice University.
I study how individuals—including members of rebel groups, governments, and 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 in 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.
