I am the 
Karl Loewenstein Post-Doctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Amherst College. Starting in the Fall Semester 2017 I will be joining the Department as an Assistant Professor. 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 both state and non-state actors to obtain their preferred outcomes. I focus in particular on the study of international conflict and civil wars.  

On leave Spring 2016.
