My book project investigates the impact of moral and legal language on public opinion,
dispute escalation, and negotiation outcomes. My research
also include projects on costly signals and crisis bargaining,
gender and foreign policy, and the use of laboratory and survey experimental methods to
examine topics ranging from political violence to public opinion
toward the use of military force. My dissertation received the 2019 John McCain Dissertation Award.
