I’m an Assistant Professor in the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security, and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany. My research examines political conflict, broadly understood, following two primary lines. The first focuses on antigovernment extremism in the U.S., especially where activists anticipate or prepare for violence. The second focuses on studying online politics and culture that makes conflict more likely, especially using computational methods. Additionally, I develop tools and processes to facilitate research using online data.
