I am a Postdoctoral fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown Univeristy. I received my Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University in June 2020.

My research focuses on state building, economic development, and the politics of religion, with a regional focus on the Middle East and North Africa.

From 2010 until 2014, I taught in the Social Sciences Department at the United States Military Academy and worked in the Combating Terrorism Center. Prior to West Point, I completed a Master's degree in International Affairs at Columbia University’s School of International and Political Affairs, and received a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from Tufts University.
