I study mass atrocities and human rights. My research has been published or is forthcoming in 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 Slate, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog, War on the Rocks, and Al Jazeera.
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.
