I’m a recently defended PhD in the Department of Politics at NYU. From September I will be a postdoctoral fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University. I study local level violence, and interventions to reduce violence, in developing countries.
Before graduate school, I worked for the United Nations and NGOs in Switzerland, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Ecuador, as well as contributing to journalistic outlets.
Some things I'm involved with now:
- Field projects in Peru, Bolivia, Myanmar, South Sudan and Afghanistan.
- NEWEPS (Northeastern Workshop in Empirical Political Science)
- The Monkey Cage (@ the Washington Post)
- NYU Graduate Student Seminar
