About

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at the University of Rochester. During the 2017-2018 year I will be a Postdoctoral Researcher at Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania.

I study the political economy of conflict and development. My research focuses on the causes of refugee crises, political violence, the politics of immigration, and the formation of national identity. I have conducted fieldwork in several Eastern European countries.
