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. While in Italy, I have also been Adjunct Professor of International Relations at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Europe. During the 2015--2016 academic year, I will be a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. 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.
