Welcome! I am Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles. 

My research and teaching interests include political sociology; war and violence; collective action and social movements; race, ethnicity, religion, and gender. My empirical work, based in Rwanda, France, Israel, and the United States, is comparative-historical, qualitative, and quantitative. In various projects, I study how formal institutions, social affiliations, and individual desires interact and bear on decision-making in times of war.
