Conflict Processes & War
Research Methods & Research Design
I am a PhD Candidate currently on the job market from the University of California, Davis Department of Political Science. My major field of study is International Relations with a secondary emphasis in Research Methods. My research focuses on the role of external actors in violent and nonviolent civil conflict. Specifically I am interested in understanding how external support influences 1) when groups choose violent or nonviolent strategies, 2) the strategic behavior of groups and target governments during civil conflict, and 3) the outcomes of violent and nonviolent civil conflicts.
