I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Davis.

My research interests involve the scientific study of international and civil conflict, specifically war expansion and diffusion. I investigate conflict processes by developing formal models (e.g., game-theoretic, computational) and then subjecting the implications of these models (i.e., hypotheses) to empirical evaluation using statistical analysis.
