I am an Assistant Professor in the Political Science department at Oklahoma State University.  I received my PhD from the University of Iowa in 2010.  From 2010-2012, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Kansas State University.  During the 2012-2013 academic year, I was a Teaching Assistant Professor at East Carolina University.  

My research and teaching interests include interstate and intrastate conflict, terrorism, and environmental politics.  My research examines how organizational characteristics and local-level factors affect terrorist behavior.  Some of my recent projects have focused on the role of competition on terrorist violence, the spatial attributes of domestic terrorism, and the impact of leadership of terrorist group violence.  My research is forthcoming or has been published in Conflict Management and Peace ScienceJournal of Global Security Studies, Terrorism & Political ViolenceJournal of PoliticsJournal of Conflict ResolutionInternational Interactions, and Political Research Quarterly.
