I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Tulane University, having earned my doctorate from Florida State University in 2021.

My research in international conflict focuses on the intersection between domestic politics and interstate conflict. In particular, I examine how major political shocks within a state disrupt both friendly and hostile pre-existing relationships between that state and others, and how these disruptions can drive both new hostilities but also potential reconciliation between enemies.

A second research project centers around air power as a tool of coercion and diplomacy, as well as around the importance of airpower to victory in modern military conflict.

My research has been published in Research and Politics, Conflict Management and Peace Science, and International Interactions, among other outlets.
