Serengeti, Tanzania (2011)
I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona. In 2013 I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at The Pennsylvania State University. My research addresses how repressive activities and institutional characteristics of governments influence (and are influenced by) violent and nonviolent strategies of domestic opposition groups. My research has been published at Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Peace Research, and Research and Politics.
