She will teach courses on terrorism, civil war, conflict in the Middle East, and international relations. Her dissertation, titled Negotiation in the Shadow of an Extremist Threat, formalizes the effect of a factionalized insurgency on the bargaining process between the insurgency and its target state, incorporating a formal model, experimental data, and a case study of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She has co-authored a piece in the International Studies Association Compendium and presented papers at annual meetings of the Peace Science Society, International Studies Association, and Midwest Political Science Association.
