My primary academic interest is in foreign aid. I am interested in the effectiveness of foreign aid in situations involving armed-conflict. Specifically, I focus on sub-types of foreign aid and their different effects on civil conflict and democratization. My current research project explores how aid shock influences the severity of civil conflict.
