I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I teach courses in international relations and political methodology. I came to UNC in 2005 after receiving my Ph.D. from the University of Rochester.
My research focuses on conflict processes, particularly the role of third parties in international and civil conflicts. My current research explores the use and effectiveness of third party conflict management strategies, such as mediation, arbitration, and adjudication.
