Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

My research examines the politics of international cooperation. I am especially interested in the consequences of states' decisions to contest, violate, and withdraw from multilateral treaties and organizations. I also research the politics of human rights and political violence and am a member of the Transitional Justice Evaluation Tools (TJET) team. My research combines quantitative and computational methods with case studies and historical evidence, with the goal of contributing broadly to the fields of international relations, political economy, security, human rights, and law. My research is published or forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science, Perspectives on Politics, the Journal of Global Security Studies, and Foreign Affairs.

I am a fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and an affiliate of the Institute of Quantitative Social Science. Previously, I have been a research fellow in the International Security Program at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, a graduate student associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and a Hans J. Morgenthau Fellow at the Notre Dame International Security Center.

Before beginning my doctoral studies, I received a Master of Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, served with the Peace Corps in Morocco, fought forest fires in the Sawtooth National Forest, and worked for public policy research organizations in Sri Lanka, Israel, Georgia, and Egypt.
