I am a PhD student in government at Georgetown University. My research focuses on three themes: (1) the dynamics of mass atrocities; (2) civilian mobilization during mass atrocities and other types of large-scale violence; and (3) international policy responses to mass atrocities and violent conflict. I’m also interested in how US social movements appropriate international human rights norms as a strategy of contention.
In addition to my PhD work, I’m an associate research fellow at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide, where I previously worked as a research assistant. I’ve also worked at Booz Allen Hamilton and the Central Intelligence Agency. I have a bachelor’s degree in international politics from Georgetown’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.
