I am an Assistant Professor of sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY. I use quantitative, qualitative, and computational methods to explore how international politics, social conflict, and inequality affect attitudes and identities. Much of my work is on the Middle East and North Africa.

My research has been published in American Journal of Sociology, Middle East Law and Governance, International Journal of Comparative Sociology, Current Sociology, Sex Roles, Sociological Forum, Sociological Perspectives, and Social Forces.
