About Me

Welcome! I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Duke University and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. My research focuses on rebel governance and recruitment during civil war and the impacts of both on post-conflict politics, primarily in Nepal. I have a particular interest in women’s participation in armed groups. My most recent project concerns the relationship between state violence against civilians and rebel forced recruitment. Prior to beginning my graduate degree, I was a Research Associate at the National Endowment for Democracy and a Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellow at the Alliance for Peacebuilding. Outside of my research, I love to hike with my dog, Cabot (yes, like the cheese), ski, and bike.
