Personal profile

Personal Statement

I obtained my PhD from Duke University in 2016, and am currently a lecturer (assistant professor) of Government and Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde. My primary focuses are in International Relations (particularly interstate conflict) and methodology.


Substantively, much of my work has centered around two topics: bargaining models, in
particular as they apply to war, and how strategic dynamics evolve when we move from simple
dyadic interactions to complex environments full of interdependencies. Methodologically, I
have aspired to the Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models approach, striving to marry
theoretical foundations with rigorous empirical tests. My work has been published in the American Journal of Political Science and the British Journal of Political Science among other places.
