I'm particularly interested in international law's effectiveness in the area of security, and particularly the work of the UN Security Council. Methodologically, my research focuses are on communicating uncertainty, causal inference, and statistical and programming pedagogy. I earned my PhD from the University of Illinois, where my dissertation on compliance with UN Security Council Resolutions won 2018 Burkholder Award for Best Dissertation in the Political Science department of the University of Illinois.
Previous to working at University of Denver, I lectured at the Technische Universität Dresden’s Center for International Studies. I've also consulted on a project with the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California Davis.
