Welcome! I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at Cornell University in the Government Department. My dissertation focuses on the implementation of countering violent extremism (CVE) programs and public opinion surrounding these programs in the United States and United Kingdom. My broader research interests include a focus on terrorism studies, Middle East studies, and research methodologies.

My research has been funded by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism, the Tobin ProjectMario Einaudi Center for International Studies at Cornell University, and the Cornell University Department of Government. I am also a Junior Research Affiliate with the Canadian Network for Terrorism, Security and Society.

On this page, you will find my CV; information about my research including papers; a link to my crowd-sourced CVE global database; and information on my teaching experiences. You can also access my Google Scholar Citations here.
