Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Clemson University. Prior to joining Clemson in Fall 2022, I worked at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (2017-2022), where I was jointly appointed in the Dept. of Social Sciences, and the Combating Terrorism Center.
My research projects relate to the topics of international, state, and human security. Within these overarching topics, my work examines the interaction between international policy tools and domestic conflict processes, as well as the various causes and consequences of political violence and terrorism. I use a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools to research the following areas:
The effectiveness of international policy tools to promote global security; my work examines the effects of foreign aid, economic sanctions, and arms embargoes on conflict dynamics
The direct and indirect consequences of political violence and terrorism on state and human security
The regional drivers of terrorism as well as the behavior of individual terrorist and insurgent organizations, with a focus on South Asia.
