Welcome to my website. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at The University of Mississippi. My research analyzes the relationships among leader survival, government spending, and interstate conflict and between war and state making. My work has been published in the Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Foreign Policy Analysis. I teach courses on interstate conflict, American foreign policy, the politics of state making, and strategic choice in international relations.
