Associate Professor of Political Science



I am a Trice Faculty Scholar and Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At UW, I run the Experimental Politics Workshop and teach courses on Political Psychology, International Relations and research methods.  

I completed my Ph.D. (2012) in the Department of Government at Harvard University.  My research interests are in the psychology of judgment and decision-making in foreign policy, and more broadly, in international security and experimental methods. 

My book, Fighting for Status: Hierarchy and Conflict in International Politics, was published in May 2017 by Princeton University Press and was awarded the 2017 Lepgold Prize from the Mortara Center at Georgetown University.
