I am currently a Dartmouth Fellow in US Foreign Policy and International Security at the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College; as of July 2014, I will be an Assistant Professor of Government at Harvard University.

My research focuses on the intersection of international security, foreign policy, political psychology, and quantitative and experimental methods, and is published or forthcoming in a variety of journals, including International Studies Quarterly and the Journal of Politics; it has also appeared on The Colbert Report, Chelsea Lately, Real Time with Bill Maher, and a variety of other media outlets. I graduated with a PhD in Political Science from The Ohio State University in August 2013.
