Welcome to my website.

My name is Gary Uzonyi, and I earned my PhD from the University of Michigan’s Department of Political Science.  Currently, I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Duke University Department of Political Science. My research considers how uncertainty influences domestic and international political violence. It also focuses on how the international community responds to this violence. Currently, I am working on projects concerning how uncertainty influences governments' use of atrocity and the international intervention into such abuse.
