I am very interested in research pertaining to contentious politics, and pay particular attention to social movements and terrorism. My regional interests are diverse, but my primary research experience is in the Chinese periphery (Central Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia). I encourage you to reach out to me via email if you feel like I can be of any help!
