Greetings! I am a Global Security Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee. I received my Ph. D. from the University of Iowa in 2018, specializing in International Relations and Comparative Politics. My research interests include international conflict, international security, natural resources, water conflict, and environmental issue and policy, as well as Asian security and politics in Northeast Asia. My primary research agenda focuses on international and domestic disputes over natural resources, and specifically water resources. I am currently Managing Editor of International Studies Quarterly, the flagship journal of the International Studies Association.
