About Me

I am broadly interested in issues of nonviolent resistance, conflict, and political violence; particularly how violence affects civilians and in turn how civilians impact the broader processes within conflict. I use a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods in my research, including in-depth qualitative interviews, archival and survey research, statistical analysis, network approaches and computerized text scraping and analytics. I have conducting research on militant and terrorist groups, militant alliance formation and decision making, peacekeeping agreements, child soldiers, non-combatants in conflict zones and on ways to leverage big data/text as data approaches for political science research.
