I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University and a fellow with the Program for Quantitative and Analytical Political Science. My dissertation research explores the influence of external support on civil war outcomes. More broadly, I am interested in formal models of conflict, political violence and insurgent strategies, and international relations of the Middle East and North Africa.

I hold a Bachelor of Science from Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service in Regional and Comparative Studies, focusing on the Middle East.
