I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at John Jay College in the City University of New York. Previously, I was a Core Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University

I obtained my PhD in Political Science from Columbia University, where I was a Provost's Diversity Fellow, and Cordier Fellow in the School of International and Public Affairs.

My research interests span the political and moral psychology of war, international law, and international ethics. My current research agenda concerns the problem of human shields in war.

My other research examines cultural transmission in conflict--the genesis and transmission of miracle stories in jihad--and norm change in world politics--the worldwide decline of ministries of war and rise of ministries of defense.

I teach a range of courses in political science, including International Relations, Rules of War, The Politics of International Human Rights, The Ethics of International Relations, International Criminal Justice, and more.
