I study mass atrocities and human rights. My research has been published or is forthcoming in World Politics, Journal of Global Security Studies, International Studies Quarterly, Political Science & Politics, and the International Journal of Transitional Justice. I also write regularly for the mainstream media, with recent commentary pieces appearing in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Slate, Foreign Policy, and the Monkey Cage blog.
I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in human rights at the Department of Political Science at University College London. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Columbia in October 2015 and have held fellowships at the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation. In addition, I have a J.D. and have practiced law in New York, Cambodia, and The Hague.
I am also one of the conveners of the Advancing Research on Conflict (ARC) Consortium, which provides methodological and ethics training and support to researchers working in violence-affected contexts.
