I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID, USA. As a political geographer, 
my research examines the geographical dimensions of international and domestic politics. 

I'm currently interested in the spatial politics of policing and law enforcement; the geographical spread of armed conflicts; and the issues involved in using geospatial technology to explore political topics. I've published on a diverse set of political issues, including terrorism, interstate war, civil war, urban violence, participatory governance, and policing. I also have methodological expertise in spatial analysis, social network analysis, and Geographic Information Science and routinely use these tools in my work. 

My research often cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries and I frequently collaborate with a diverse set of scholars in geography, political science, criminology, and urban planning. My research has been published in Progress in Human GeographyAnnals of the Association of American Geographers, The Professional Geographer, Eurasian Geography and Economics, and Territory, Politics, Governance among others. I am a member of the American Association of Geographers the Political Geography Specialty Group, and the International Studies Association.

I periodically accept graduate students interested in political geography. Please contact me by email to discuss research and funding opportunities in the Geography graduate program at the University of Idaho.
