I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Rochester.  My research and teaching interests focus on the political economy of conflict, political methodology, and formal political theory. My current research applies causal inference techniques to identify drivers of violent conflict, motives for group formation, and the emergence of international borders. I am also interested in how economic integration relates to issue indivisibility and information asymmetry.   A copy of my CV is here.
