I am broadly interested in the causes, nature and outcomes of political violence, insecurity of minority groups, state repression, civilians in conflict zones and forms of resistance. I use a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods in my research, with a focus on "big data" for social science research, qualitative and quantitative approaches to using text as data, as well as statistical analysis, network approaches, in-depth qualitative interviews, archival research, and online ethnography. I have also conducted research on militant and terrorist groups and peacekeeping and peace agreements.
