I’m an assistant professor of political science at the University of South Carolina. I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science at Duke University in the spring of 2019.
In my research, I write about armed conflict, security and development, and post-conflict transitions. At USC, I teach courses on the study of political violence and quantitative methodology.
I am also affiliated with the DevLab@Duke where I collaborate on the design and evaluation of international development programs. To date I have worked on projects for USAID and the World Bank in Colombia, Indonesia, and Guatemala.
Outside of academia, I enjoy reading fiction, cooking, traveling, and playing the drums.
