Bio

I am an assistant professor in the Department of International Affairs within the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) at the University of Georgia. I received my PhD in political science from Binghamton University in 2012.

My work focuses primarily on the determinants of human rights practices, collective dissent, political violence, and economic development. I have a strong research interest in the international diffusion of local outcomes, as well as the institutions, organizations, and processes that generate such diffusion. I am also actively involved in the measurement of human rights practices.

I am the Co-Founder and Civil & Political Rights Metrics Lead for the Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI), co-director of the archived CIRI Human Rights Data Project, and co-Principal Investigator on the Worker Rights in Law & Practice Data Project (WorkR) and the Sub-National Analysis of Repression Project (SNARP).
