About Me

I am a doctoral candidate in International Relations at American University, School of International Service, interested in peace studies.

In terms of philosophy of science and research methodologies I am a pluralist and open to multiple approaches. My background includes extensive training in quantitative methods, including advanced regression and maximum likelihood estimation through  the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) and a variety of qualitative approaches, including discourse analysis and process tracing through the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research.  Before beginning a PhD program I spent five years teaching and researching in Indonesia through Mennonite Central Committee, a peace and development nonprofit.
