I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Broadly, I study how states construct the threat of terrorism and the implications for who and how many people participate in different types of political violence. I previously worked on the Global Terrorism Database at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) and as a communications associate at the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) on Department of Defense acquisition programs, military contracting, and government accountability. I hold an MA in political science from UW-Madison and BAs in international relations and modern languages (German and French) from Knox College.
