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 using primary sources.  My research is published in World Politics and Security Studies.

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.
