I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Social and Political Sciences, Università Bocconi in Milan, Italy. I received my PhD from the Department of Government, University of Essex in Colchester, UK.

My research interests include political violence, nonviolent action, and conflict processes. In my work, I study different types of political mobilization and their determinants, dynamics, and outcomes, using primarily quantitative methods.

My research has been published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics.

I am a Conference Organizer for the Conflict Research Society.
