I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Economic Liberty and the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University (ASU). I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from ASU in 2017. My research interests span civil and interstate conflict, collective action, religion and politics, and methods with an empirical focus on Eurasia and Eastern Europe. My peer-reviewed articles appear in Caucasus Survey, Nationalities Papers, Politics and Religion, Post-Soviet Affairs, and Social Science Quarterly.
