Welcome! I am a PhD student in Political Science at the University of Michigan. My research spans international relations and comparative politics. I study the structure of the internal security apparatus, the dynamics of political violence, and post-conflict state-building.  I analyze these questions in the Central and Eastern African contexts using archival, satellite, and geospatial data.

I received my BA from the University of Michigan in Political Science and English with a minor in History in 2014.
