I am the 
Karl Loewenstein Post-Doctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor in Political Science in the Department of Political Science at Amherst College. I earned my PhD in Political Science in December 2014 from The Ohio State University.

  I research the way in which technology shapes the competition between different interests to obtain their preferred outcomes in the international arena. If, as Lasswell famously claimed, "politics is about who gets what, when, and how" how does the competition between these groups respond to technological advances?

I focus  in particular on the study of international conflict and civil wars.
