I am an assistant professor of Political Science at Skidmore College, having received a PhD in Political Science from Brown University in 2014.

I am also a nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center and a United States Institute of Peace Jennings Randolph Peace Scholar. I specialize in security, unconventional warfare, and South Asian politics.

My book manuscript, entitled Gambling with Violence: State Outsourcing of War in Pakistan and India, is under contract with Oxford University Press.
