I'm a political scientist, studying the political economy of conflict and development. Currently I am a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University, based at the Niehaus Center on Globalization and Governance and will start as an Assistant Professor at Emory University in 2019.

My research focuses on the causes and effects of local level conflict in the developing world, including the implications of international interventions such as aid or democracy promotion. My scholarly work has been published in the American Political Science Review.
