I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of California at Berkeley in 2020 and I am currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for International Studies at the University of Southern California. I will be starting as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Uppsala University's Department of Peace and Conflict Research in Fall 2021.
My research focuses on multi-party civil wars, including conflict dynamics, peace processes, and civilian participation. My dissertation examines how, in civil wars involving more than one rebel group, governments use peace agreements as a counterinsurgency tool to counter rebel groups that remain outside the peace agreement. I also examine how the dynamics of multiparty conflict affect insurgents' bargaining position with the state, as well as the use of former rebel soldiers in counterinsurgency offensives.
