I am a Ph. D. candidate (ABD) at the Department of Politics at New York University. My main research interests lie in the intersection between the political economy of violence, and game theory. In particular, I develop formal models of endogenous property right formation and conflict, with applications to illicit markets, criminal governance, state formation, and labor unions.
