profile

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, where I study external intervention in internal conflicts, limited war, and counterinsurgency. I am also a co-director of the Postcor Lab, a research hub dedicated to the study of civil wars and war-to-peace transitions.

My book, Wars Without End: Competitive Intervention, Escalation Control, and Protracted Conflict, is forthcoming with Oxford University Press. Some of my other work has been published in the British Journal of Political Science, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Strategic Studies, and Political Science Research and Methods, among other venues, and has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, the United States Institute of Peace, and the Smith Richardson Foundation.

I hold a PhD in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I was affiliated with the Security Studies Program. I also previously worked for the Irish Department of Justice, as well as the Independent Monitoring Commission, an independent body that monitored paramilitarism and security normalization in Northern Ireland.
