About Me

I am Program Officer at the US Institute of Peace where I conduct research on Economics and Peacebuilding. I recently finished my PhD in politics at Princeton University. My focus was on peacekeeping and intervention. I am also interested in global emergency response, gender and conflict, and the micro-dynamics of war.

My dissertation, “Peace for Keeps”, is on the deployment and effects of United Nations Peacekeeping Operations.  I examine the strategic interaction between the UN, the host government, and the rebels, and what this can tell us about the role of sovereignty in International Relations.

The views expressed on this website are my own.
