Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University. I study civil war, self-determination, military intervention, and diplomacy by self-determination groups, as well as research design and North African politics. Right now, I am writing a book about the international sovereignty of separatist and self-determination movements, based on an original dataset I am collecting on diplomatic efforts by these aspiring states. I have been published in the Journal of Experimental Political Science and Foreign Affairs.
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on IR research methods, international security, civil war and intervention, terrorism, and Middle Eastern and North African politics.
