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 an Assistant Professor in the University of Tennessee Department of Political Science. I am also a Research Fellow at the Howard H. Baker, Jr. Center for Public Policy. 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.
