I am a PhD Candidate in International Relations and Political Methodology at (The!) Ohio State University. My research focuses on international order, societal mobilization, and the impact of transnational advocacy on foreign policy. I use a range of methods to get traction on these issues, including natural language processing, agent-based models, case studies, and survey experiments.
My research has been published or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science and the Oxford University Press. I am grateful for the support of the National Science Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the American Psychological Association, among others.
I am a founding member of Ohio State's MESO Lab (Modeling Emergent Social Order) and have held fellowships with Johns Hopkins University's Henry Kissinger Center for Global Affairs, George Washington University's Institute for Security and Conflict Studies, and the United States Institute of Peace.
I previously served as a Defense Strategist at the United States Department of Defense, in addition to other policy roles.
