I am an Assistant Professor in New York University's Wilf Family Department of Politics. My research focuses on issues related to international peace and security, and I am particularly interested in the effects of third-party interventions in armed conflicts. My work combines theories of strategic choice, methods for causal inference, statistical analysis, and survey methods.

I have studied the causes and consequences of international mediation in military conflicts, have been a co-investigator for a panel survey that tracked respondents across Sudan and South Sudan around the time of Sudan's partition, and co-led a survey in Liberia that investigated the micro-level effects of the country's ongoing UN peacekeeping mission. I have also written on the economics of rebel recruitment and on how to detect election fraud in data-poor environments.
