I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of International Affairs at the University of Georgia. My research focuses broadly on international relations, particularly international conflict and its (peaceful) management and resolution. Along the way, my work touches upon topics that fall under the broad headings of territorial conflict, international border disputes, interstate rivalries (or protracted conflict), democratization, human rights, international law, and various conflict management methods (e.g., negotiations, mediation, and peacekeeping).
A more detailed explanation of my research - including the research questions in which I am interested, publications, working papers, and replication data - can be found on my Research page. Information on courses I teach (including sample syllabi), my mentoring/advisory roles, teaching honors, and evidence of my teaching effectiveness appears on my Instruction page. Student resources (for example, the list of materials I need to write a letter of recommendation) appear on the page For Students. You can schedule an appointment to speak with me during my office hours by visiting my Office Hours Appointment page.
