What I do
I'm a PhD candidate at Boston College and a consulting analyst for the Armed Conflict Database (IISS) covering Afghanistan and Pakistan. Formerly, I was a graduate fellow at the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy. My research is in the fields of Comparative Politics, International Relations, and U.S. Foreign Policy. Within these fields I study military strategy, state failure, armed statebuilding operations, terrorism, civil-military relations, and foreign-imposed regime change. I've taught classes on terrorism and published articles in the Journal of Political Science Education, The National Interest, The Diplomat, and The Strategy Bridge.
