I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for International Security & Cooperation at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Stanford University in 2018. I study obstacles to countering violent extremism and the impact of transnational extremism on political behavior in the Islamic World. My book project explores the microfoundations of moderate mobilization against radical groups in Indonesia.
I am a Junior Fellow at the Association for Analytic Learning about Islam and Muslim Societies, a 2017 Young Southeast Asia Fellow at the Southeast Asia Research Group, and a Junior Research Affiliate at the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security, and Society.
My research is supported by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Institute for Peace, the Horowitz Foundation, the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs, and the Vice Provost for Graduate Education at Stanford University, among others.
Prior to graduate school, I spent a year in Central Java, Indonesia on a Fulbright Scholarship and worked at the U.S-Indonesia Society. I graduated summa cum laude from Bowdoin College with a double major in Government and Economics. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and hiking.
