I received my Ph.D. in political science from Brown University in May 2017 and will be a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Skidmore College this coming fall.  My research and teaching interests center on political conflict, state-building, democratization, electoral violence, internal conflict, development, and political order and violence.  My dissertation has been generously supported by the Smith Richardson Foundation and the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs.  Prior to coming to Brown, I received a M.A. from Leiden University and a B.A. from the University at Albany, both in political science.
