About me

Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in the political science department at Duke University and a fellowship awardee from the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict.

My research interests lie in the intersection of conflict studies and methodology, with a focus on the geography and networks of conflict dynamics. At the intrastate level, I study geographic patterns of protest and state repression in authoritarian regimes. At the interstate level, I study how arms trade networks shape interstate conflicts with substantive references to community and hierarchy.

My research agenda also brings to light important methodological challenges relevant to the field, and my work introduces computational methods to address these challenges, especially in spatial and network analysis.
