Welcome! I am an applied political economist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Government at the University of Bergen in Bergen, Norway.

My research combines both causal inference and statistical learning methods in order to answer questions about the political economy of civil conflicts and violent crime in developing countries.

I collaborate with Carlo Koos on the WarEffects ERC project at UiB. In it, we examine how civil wars impact gender relations and women’s empowerment.

Work in progress:

  • Military Responses to Foreign Policy Announcements: Evidence from Ukraine (with Ethan B. Kasptein).
  • State Violence and Local Instability: An Analysis of Extrajudicial Killings and Post-Conflict Violence in Colombia
