Welcome to my web page. I am an associate professor of political science at the University of California, Davis. My research explores international networks in the areas of militarized conflict, intergovernmental organization, and bilateral cooperation. I also conduct research in international security more broadly, primarily on issues of credible signaling and audience costs. My published work has appeared or is forthcoming in International Organization, American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and elsewhere. I received my PhD in political science from Yale University. You can find my Google Scholar page here.
