I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at UCLA,

where my dissertation committee is comprised of Arthur Stein (chair),

Barry OĠNeill, Michael Chwe, Marc Trachtenberg, and Robert Boyd.

I will complete my degree in June 2013. My research interests are in

international security, foreign policy, and quantitative methods, with

a focus on territory and conflict, the evolution of the international system,

the role of emotions in decision-making, and the sources of influence in

the international system.


Prior to UCLA, I received an M.A. in International Relations from Claremont

Graduate University, where I focused on political philosophy, International

Relations, and behavioral economics.  I received my B.A. with a major in

Biology and a minor in Psychology from Reed College in Portland, Oregon.


This year I will be a 2012-13 Nuclear Dissertation Fellow at the Institute on

Global Conflict and Cooperation.
