Welcome to my website! I am a PhD candidate at Duke University in political science, with an emphasis in security, peace and conflict (international relations) and political institutions (comparative politics). My research interests include peacebuilding, peacekeeping, community dispute resolution and gender and conflict. I am currently a pre-doctoral fellow at Cornell University for the Gender and the Security Sector Lab.
