About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the History Department where I study international intervention in Bosnia during the 1992-1995 conflict. More specifically, my work explores the discourse and narratives that were (re)produced by the United Nations Security Council, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in an effort to better understand the role language plays in shaping and illuminating policies and mandates in times of crisis.

My work sits at a nexus of history, humanitarian studies, genocide studies, political science, and policy analysis as I seek to contribute to broader conversations about the efficacy of humanitarian aid; the relationship between humanitarianism, international law, and peacekeeping; and the role transnational organizations play in localized conflict settings.
