IMG_0294I 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 the study of conflict processes, particularly the role of third parties in international and civil conflicts.  See the menu above to learn more about my research and teaching.  Click here for a column that discusses my work on military intervention.
