Welcome to my website. I am currently an academic year lecturer at Santa Clara University. I graduated in 2017 with a PhD in Political Science from the University of Missouri. I study international relations with a focus on quantitative approaches to international security, human rights, and public opinion as it relates to foreign policy. Specifically, my research examines the overlap between conflict and respect for human rights, as well as state support for violent groups in other states. My other main research project is the Most Important Problems Dataset, which tracks issue attention at the individual-level in the US from 1939 until 2015.
