I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. My fields are International Relations and Methodology, and my research focuses on the intersection of civil war and interstate war. In my dissertation, I combine formal theory, archival work, and statistical modeling to explain why and when civil wars become interstate wars.
I am also a graduate fellow with the Clements Center for National Security, and I have previously been a research assistant at the Strauss Center for International Security and Law and a junior research fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI).
