A copy of my CV can be found here.

I received my Ph.D. in Political Science and International Affairs from the University of Georgia in May of 2018.  I am currently a research fellow in the Centre for Political and Legal Analytics at Cardiff University.

I study international relations and comparative politics. I am mainly interested in questions surrounding how states prosecute their wars and bring them to an end. In addition, I am interested and I have published papers on militarized diplomacy, refugee flows, and forecasting interstate conflict. More information regarding my previous and ongoing projects can be found on the research page on this site.

In addition to my active research agenda, I am a dedicated and successful teacher. At the University of Georgia, I have been the instructor of record for six courses. I have taught honors and regular sections of Introduction to Global Issues, an upper division course on International Conflict, and Introduction to Comparative Politics. Within the classroom, I have used varied and innovative means of instruction with great success. For example, I have had my classes play online simulations, engage in classroom simulations, and participate in classroom debates. Additionally, I have been part of creating, writing, and implementing a Reacting to the Past game, a history based simulation. More information regarding past courses I have taught can be found on the teaching page on this site.
