In the fall of 2017, I will start a job as a tenure-track assistant professor in the Government Department of Cornell University. During 2016-2017, I will be a Dartmouth Fellow in U.S. Foreign Policy and International Security. My research focuses on intra-state conflict, state building, security sector reform, gender, and peacekeeping.
I have two major sets of projects that relate to these themes. My dissertation explores how security sector reform facilitates post-conflict peace and security. In a separate forthcoming book manuscript at Oxford University Press, I examine the role of gender in international peacekeeping. My research has been published in International Organization, the Journal of Peace Research, International Interactions, and International Peacekeeping.
I use quantitative and qualitative methods, including field experiments. I have done extensive fieldwork in Liberia and Peru. The National Science Foundation, the Folke Bernadotte Academy, the International Growth Centre, the British Research Council, and the U.S. Department of State’s Fulbright Program have all funded my research.
