I am a Ph.D. student of political science at the Pennsylvania State University, where I received my M.A. in May of 2016. Previously I studied at the University of Illinois, where I received my B.A. in Political Science in 2014.
My research focuses on human rights, with a particular interest in how states suppress information and avoid accountability. You can find out more about my work by visiting my research page. Some of my current projects analyze human rights violations that went temporarily unreported, examine media bias in political violence reporting, and evaluate how people assess allegations of human rights abuses with incomplete information.
