I am a Professor in the School of Government & Public Policy at the University of Arizona, where I also serve as Associate Director.
My research and teaching address a variety of topics in international security, including the causes and consequences of terrorism, protests and riots, civil war, and international disputes. Within this, I pay close attention to how the tactics of conflict diffuse and the processes that force refugees and migrants from their homes. This is the topic of my project on refugees and instability.
I also spend time collaborating with colleagues through the Conflict & Security research group at the U of A, the Four Corners Conflict Network, and the Refugees and Forced Migration research network (REFORM-Net).
