I am a 2017 Moore/Sloan & WRF Innovation in Data Science Postdoctoral Fellow and an Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington. My research focuses on civilians in conflict zones, state repression and myriad forms of resistance. Before coming to Seattle, I worked as a contract research and writer, most recently completing research for the BASIC Trident Commission on British nuclear weapons policy and for the LSE Center for the Study of Global Governance on peace agreements.

I am also an athlete. I competed at the 2012 Olympic Trials (rowing) and am a Boston Marathon qualifier in 2017.

Outside of research and training, I can be found galavanting around the Pacific Northwest, on foot with a sweet black lab, or in boats of one sort or another.
