I study mass atrocities and human rights. My writing has appeared in the International Journal of Transitional Justice, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog, War on the Rocks, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, The National Interest, Vox, and The New York Times.
I am spending the 2017-2018 academic year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Columbia in October 2015. I also have a J.D. (Columbia, 2006) and have practiced law in New York, Cambodia, and The Hague.
