Welcome to my website! I am a Ph.D. student in political science at Northwestern University. I study comparative politics, with a focus on civil war, state-society relations, and refugee politics in the Middle East.
I also write about the American Midwest. My book, As Ohio Goes: Life in the Post-Recession Nation, tells the stories of average Americans living in a moment of record income inequality and declining standards of living. It is forthcoming from Kent State University Press in 2016. For related posts, visit the blog page on this site and follow As Ohio Goes on Facebook!
