Research Interests

​My research interests center on extra-institutional political contention in non-democracies, with a particular focus on nonviolent civil resistance. I am primarily a quantitative researcher, but employ various methods to answer questions about how people in non-representative political systems struggle to make their voices heard and achieve political change.

My current book project examines political transitions following successful nonviolent revolutions, explaining the factors that lead from the nonviolent overthrow of an authoritarian regime to democratization.

I am also currently a fellow with the Anatomy of Resistance Campaigns project at NTNU, collecting data on the types of organizations that participate in maximalist resistance movements.
