Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science and Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy at Washington University in St. Louis. I specialize in International Relations and Political Methodology. I earned my Ph.D in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2019. I also earned my M.A. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016 and my B.A. in Political Science from Haverford College in 2012.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in International Studies Quarterly, Political Science Research and Methods, and The Journal of Open Source Software. My dissertation explores the intersection between space, governance, and rebel group goals, employing a multi method research design using Bayesian statistics, agent-based models, and qualitative case studies. My research has a dual focus on civil conflict and developing new tools for the study of peace and conflict. I have teaching experience in both international relations and quantitative methodology.
