I conduct research at the intersection of political violence and political ecology. My research investigates a range of questions related to the politics of climate change, environmental conflict, and political violence more broadly. Specifically, my dissertation will address the relationship between natural resource governance and conflict in both international and domestic arenas. I aim to explain variation in resource regimes and uncover the interplay between these governance structures and international and domestic conflict, particularly in the context of transboundary resources and in times of scarcity.
