I am an Assistant Professor in New York University's Wilf Family Department of Politics. My research focuses on issues related to international security and conflict, with an emphasis on strategic choice, statistical analysis, and survey methods.

Most recently, I have studied the causes and consequences of international mediation in military conflicts, have been a co-investigator for a panel survey that tracked respondents across Sudan and South Sudan around the time of Sudan's partition, and collaborated on a survey in Liberia that relates economic livelihoods and the country's ongoing UN peacekeeping mission. I have also written on the economics of rebel recruitment and on how to detect election fraud in data-poor environments.
