I am a PHD-Student in political science at Cornell University. Next year, I will be a pre-doctoral fellow in the department of sociology at Northwestern University. In 2016, I will join the same department as an Assistant Professor. I combine archival work with geographical information systems to study civil society and intergroup relationships in times of social upheaval. My research has been/will be published in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Peace Research, Mobilization, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, European Sociological Review and International Sociology.
