Bio: 

My work emphasizes critical gender and critical race approaches to the Women, Peace and Security agenda, specifically policy initiatives that aim to increase the number of women in armed conflict, with most of my research focusing on women’s contributions to violence during armed conflict, war law compliance, and public perceptions of women extremists. As a feminist scholar, I maintain a deep commitment to the activist and policy implications of my work, as well as to structural changes within the university. 

I previously worked in Women, Peace and Security policy and as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Rwanda. I am always willing and excited to talk to students about careers within and outside of the academy.
