Welcome to my website! Currently, I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow with the Research Center on International Politics and Conflict Resolution (CeRPIC) at the Bruno Kessler Foundation in Trento, Italy, and Adjunct Professor of International Relations at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Europe. I study international relations broadly, and interstate conflict more specifically. In March of 2013, I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Rochester.
