I’m an assistant professor of political science at the University of South Carolina, where I teach courses in political violence and quantitative methodology. In the spring of 2019 I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science at Duke University. My research interests are in comparative politics and international relations, with a focus on armed conflict, security and development, and post-conflict transitions.
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.
