I am an incoming Assistant Professor of Political Science at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Public Affairs and Citizenship, starting in Fall 2023. Currently, I work at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) as an Instructor of Political Science. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Loyola University Chicago, specializing in International Relations and Comparative Politics.


My research focuses on the links between domestic and international politics, political violence, and gender politics. I use statistical analyses of observational and experimental data, as well as qualitative case studies based on archival research.  My research is published in World Politics and Security Studies, and my book project is under contract with Cambridge University Press.


At NYUAD, Loyola, and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, I taught courses on international relations, comparative politics, gender and security, racial and ethnic politics, and social justice.
