Research Interests

My research interests primarily relate to political violence and include such topics as insurgency, civil war, interstate war, and terrorism. While my research is mostly cross-national, I am particularly interested in Latin America.


My primary teaching interests relate to terrorism, violence, human rights, security policy, and research methods.
