I am a political scientist working on topics related to peace and conflict, and international affairs. I obtained my PhD from the Department of Government, University of Essex in Colchester, UK. 

My research interests include conflict transformation, nonviolent action, political violence, and conflict processes. In some of my work, I research different types of political mobilization and their determinants, dynamics, and outcomes, using primarily quantitative methods. 

My research has been published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics, International Interactions, Learned Publishing, and Studies in Conflict & Terrorism.
