My research interests focus on the quantitative study of international conflict and peace processes. I am particularly interested in questions related to the role of third parties in shaping conflict dynamics, the links between armed conflict and gender power imbalances, the diffusion of armed conflict across space, and the impact of nuclear weapons on international crisis behavior.
I teach a range of courses on international conflict resolution, international security and research methodology.
I am also a board member and chair of the Faculty Advisory Council for the Center for Christianity and Scholarship.
