I’m a PhD student in the Department of Government at Georgetown University. My research focuses on three themes: (1) the dynamics of mass violence, especially pogroms; (2) civilian mobilization during episodes of mass 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. My research has been published or is forthcoming in Comparative Politics and Genocide Studies and Prevention.
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, and an Affiliated Scholar at the International Justice Lab at the College of William & Mary. 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.
