I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of California at Berkeley as well as the Gallatin Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.
My research focuses on multi-party civil wars, including conflict dynamics, peace processes, and civilian participation. My dissertation examines how, in multi-party civil wars, governments use peace agreements with a subset of rebel groups 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.
