Welcome to my website! I am an incoming Visiting Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at Clark University and an Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Global Studies at Bentley University. I earned my PhD from the Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame in 2022. My research and teaching interests include international and comparative law, international organizations, constitutional design, political violence, and post-conflict reconstruction. The driving concern of my research is to illuminate how politics and law interact – especially during conflict – to shape the foundational rules that govern peoples’ lives around the world.

I completed my MA in Political Science at Notre Dame in 2018. I also hold an MSc in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA from McGill University with majors in Political Science and Middle East Studies.  Before graduate school, I worked as a compliance analyst in the legal and financial services industries where I focused on anti-money laundering and sanctions.  You can learn more about my professional and educational background from my CV.
