I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Colorado in 2015. Before attending graduate school, I taught English in Sichuan, China and spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Georgia (2005-2007).
My research focuses on the political processes involved in human development. I examine public goods and services, ethnic politics and migration, and the way politics shape natural resource management and natural disaster response.
