Areas of Research/Interest: International intervention in civil conflict, formal models of international cooperation
About Me: My research explores the effects of various types of international interventions (peacekeeping, post-conflict reconstruction aid and ex-combatant reintegration programs) on the societies in which those interventions are undertaken. I continue to have an ongoing research interest in using formal models to understand international cooperation. My teaching at the undergraduate level mainly consists of advising honors theses in the senior research seminar of the International Relations Honors major. At the MA level I teach a course on formal models of international cooperation and sometimes a course on civil wars and international interventions. At the PhD level I usually teach one half of the department's year long international relations core course, the half that focuses on political economy and international cooperation topics.
