Welcome to my website. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at The University of Mississippi. My research primarily focuses on questions about the relationships between political leaders and interstate conflict, how governments pay for war, and state making processes. My work has been published in the Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Conflict Resolution, and other outlets. I teach courses on interstate conflict, leaders in world politics, American foreign policy, the politics of state making, and strategic choice in international relations.
