I am an assistant professor of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine. In my research, I examine how and why international organizations (IOs) perform in the ways that they do - particularly in the arena of conflict management.
My research interests include: decision-making, delegation, organizational performance, organizational change (e.g. institutional memory, learning, reforms), crisis response, crisis management, civilian and military operations, operational effectiveness, gender representation and gender mainstreaming. I have expertise in NATO, the EU, the AU, the OAS, the OSCE and the UN.
