Assistant Professor

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government. Before joining the Dartmouth faculty, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Dickey Center for International Understanding (2015-2016) and taught at the University of Georgia. My research brings psychology to international relations to understand how people think about foreign policy and make decisions about war and peace. I am currently working on two primary projects: My book manuscript investigates how national and transnational identities shape conflict and cooperation, and a series of articles probes how values inform foreign policy public opinion in the U.S. and abroad.
