About Me

My research examines the fluctuating relationships between social identity, ideology, and interpersonal, socio-political action in contexts marked by war and violence. More simply, I study how people classify themselves and others, how these classification practices matter and change in times of war, and how they shape individuals’ behaviors and decision-making about violence. In using qualitative, historical, and experimental methods to craft falsifiable theories about violence, my research spans culture, politics, morality, identities, and conflict.
