I am an Instructor of Political Science at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD). 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.
I am an Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM) alumna and a Women In International Security (WIIS) Next Generation Fellow.
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.
