Welcome to my website! Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow with the Research Center on International Politics and Conflict Resolution (CeRPIC) at the Bruno Kessler Foundation in Trento, Italy. Beginning in January 2014, I will also serve as 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.
