My major research interests includes: Non-Violence, Civil War Theory, Post-Conflict Stability, Political Economy and Statistical Modeling.
My PhD project; 'Desisting from Violence: The selection of Non-Violent vs. Violent Strategies', is on the strategic choices made by opposition groups, and what causes a non-violent, violent or mixed strategy.
