Personal Statement: 

I am a post-doc at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science with a designated emphasis in Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

My research examines international norms, gender and advocacy, with a focus on the Muslim world, using a mix of quantitative, qualitative and computational methods. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in International Studies Quarterly; Review of International Orgnizations; and Theory, Culture & Society, among others.

I am current working on book project that examines resistance and defiance towards international norms. The manuscript is based on my dissertation, which won the 2017 Merze Tate (formerly Helen Dwight Reid) Award for the best dissertation in international relations, law, and politics from the American Political Science Association.

I also teach computational social science in a number of capacities. In 2015 I developed and taught a new graduate methods course, PS239T: Introduction to Computational Tools and Techniques that is still taught in Berkeley's Political Science department. Over at Stanford, I teach Machine Learning for Political Science.
