I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Oklahoma State University. I teach numerous courses at Oklahoma State University, including the introductory international relations course, research methods, upper division courses on international conflict and international law.
My research interests are civil and international conflict. A number of ongoing research projects are detailed in the projects section, and publications can be found below. I also lead a research group called the Conflict and War Study Group, which combines my interests in teaching, mentoring, and research.
