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.
I spend a good deal of time collaborating and coordinating with colleagues through the Conflict Lab, the Four Corners Conflict Network, and the Refugees and Forced Migration research network (REFORM-Net).
I spend much of the rest of my time roaming the desert with J and the pups.
