My Research:

My dissertation focuses on what motivates governments to pay reparations to their own citizens in the wake of widespread, state-sanctioned human rights abuses. Current projects examine how bureaucratic and judicial implementation of reparations laws varies by victim group and how/why governments' reparations promises and payments vary by the types of abuses that were committed.
