Biographical sketch and research interests

I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Michigan. My research interests lie at the intersection of international relations, conflict studies, and political psychology. Specifically, I am interested in exploring the strategic and psychological dimensions of war and other forms of political violence, terrorism in particular. My research integrates empirical findings from the study of emotions and cognition into rationalist models of political conflict to explore the behavioral micro-foundations engendering (or resulting from) various forms of political violence. I also study the behavior of political elites, investigating the impact of cognitive, emotional and motivational phenomena on leaders’ crisis decision making, and diplomatic and military policies.
