Welcome! I am a fourth year graduate student at WashU studying International Relations and Methods. Broadly, I’m interested in topics related to borders, territory, and political violence. My research looks to understand the consequences of disputed territories on state as well as individuals. I leverage novel historical data as well as surveys to explore how disputed territories can lead to conflict and why individuals might support the use of force. I have a secondary interest in GIS and spatial analysis.

Outside of my research I enjoy reading fiction, coffee, Beagles, watching films, and scrolling through basketball reference pages – please feel free to email me your favorites.

I received my undergraduate degrees in International Affairs and Economics from the University of Georgia (Back-to-Back Champions) in Athens, GA.

My CV is available here.
