About me

Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in the department of Political Science and 2018-2019 Dean’s Graduate Fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Begining in Fall of 2019, I will be a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I specialize in International Relations and Political Methodology. I earned my BA in Political Science from Haverford College in 2012 and my MA in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016.

My work is forthcoming in Political Science Research and Methods. 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.
