Personal Statement: 

I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of California at Berkeley as well as the Gallatin Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.

My research focuses on multiparty civil wars, including conflict dynamics, peace processes, and civilian participation. My dissertation examines how, in multi-party civil wars, governments use peace agreements with a subset of rebel groups as a counterinsurgency tool to counter rebel groups that remain outside the peace agreement. I also examine how the dynamics of multiparty conflict affect insurgents' bargaining position with the state, as well as the use of former rebel soldiers in counterinsurgency offensives.
