Generally, I am interested in two broad areas. First, I am interested in political conflict and violence – particularly that involving governments and those affiliated with them (e.g., genocide/politicide, mass killing, torture, bans, curfews, beatings, arrests for political purposes and domestic spying). I have a broad interest in the topic, which has brought me to look at both global patterns and individual cases (the United States, Rwanda, India, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Zimbabwe, Mexico and Northern Ireland) as well as employ a diverse range of approaches (i.e., statistical research, ethnography, film and gaming). Additionally, I am interested in peace and peace making – particularly understanding what it is, how it can be measured and what can be done to create/sustain/expand it. This interest has thus far been largely conceptual but I am creating some measurements for it that can be implemented globally.
