Welcome to my website! I am a doctoral candidate in political science at Northwestern University. I study comparative politics, with a focus on civil war and refugee-related 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 was published by Kent State University Press in May 2016. Learn more about As Ohio Goes by scrolling over the menu above.
