Abigail Sticha is working with Professor Ernesto Verdeja on his research pertaining to mass violence, genocide, and civil wars.  Sticha assists both Professor Verdeja and PhD student Angela Chesler in their research on the triggers of mass violence and the dynamics of violence escalation, sustainment, and declines.  As a research assistant, Sticha is helping code triggers of mass violence by reading and tagging various news sources related to specific cases of mass violence.  Specifically, the project focuses on coding trigger type events, such as assassinations, coups, and postponed elections, from various countries in order to find trends that will inform policy makers on what factors may lead to the next event of mass violence within a country.
