Field research in Acre, Israel, 2011.
I am an assistant professor in the School of Public Affairs at American University.
I received my Ph.D in September of 2013 from the Politics Department at New York University. I am interested in why individuals fight and how leaders can mobilize supporters for conflict or peace. Using experimental methods drawn from social psychology and behavioral economics, along with large-N analysis, I study how psychological factors and political constraints influence conflict behavior.
