I am a PhD student within the department of Political Science at the University of California, Davis studying comparative politics and methodology. I completed undergrad at Oregon State University studying Political Science and New Media Communications. Currently my research interests focus on violence and conflict. My current research focuses the intersection of violence against women and political participation. My goal is to understand how violence targeted against women can result in the mobilization and demoralizition of women participating in politics.
