I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of International Affairs at the University of Georgia. My research falls within the field of political science -- in particular, the subfield of international relations -- and focuses on 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 -- appears on my Research page. Information on the courses I teach (including sample syllabi), my mentoring/advisory roles, teaching honors, and evidence of my teaching effectiveness can be found 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. And students can schedule an appointment to speak with me during my office hours by visiting my Office Hours Appointment page.
