Assistant Professor in Political Science
Welcome to my personal website!
I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Law and Government at Dublin City University. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin. I received my PhD in Government from the Department of Government at the University of Essex. I am also a Research Fellow at the Michael Nicholson Centre for Conflict and Cooperation, University of Essex. Between 2014 and 2018, I was a member of the Research School on Peace and Conflict at Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).
My research on the legacy of democratic transitions on democratic attitudes is funded by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). I have also engaged in policy consultancy for USAID's "Democracy, Human Rights and Governance" Excellence Center.
My research focuses on the politics of authoritarian regimes, state repression, civil-military relations and democratization.
My work has been published at Comparative Political Studies, Research&Politics, and Journal of Peace Research.
My public scholarship on democracy and human rights can be found on Political Violence @ a Glance.
