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.
