I am an associate professor in the School of Public Affairs at American University.
My research focuses on political violence and political psychology. I am particularly interested in the effects of social media and exposure to violence on political attitudes, why individuals fight, and how leaders mobilize supporters for conflict or peace. My research uses survey and experimental methods drawn from social psychology and behavioral economics, along with large-N analysis.
