Welcome. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for International Development and Conflict Management (CIDCM) at the University of Maryland. I hold a Ph.D. in Government and Politics from the University of Maryland, an M.A. from the same program, and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Saint Thomas.
My research uses a political psychology approach to explore contemporary issues in civil resistance, human rights, and environmental politics. I recently had a research article accepted for publication at Human Rights Review and have written a media article for OpenGlobalRights (2017).
I have over eight years of experience teaching at the university-level and teach a variety of courses in each of the Political Science subfields. I have taught at the University of Maryland, Gettysburg College, and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
My curriculum vitae, current research projects, teaching, and contact information are available on this site.
