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 The Los Angeles Review of Books, Slate, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog, War on the Rocks, and Al Jazeera.
As of September 2018, 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. I also have a J.D. (Columbia, 2006) and have practiced law in New York, Cambodia, and The Hague.
