Research

My research agenda is broad; I chase down quality research questions, wherever it takes me. Generally, I am a peace scientist focused on the violation and protection of human rights, especially within developed democracies. In my work on American policing, I investigate the structural policy elements that produce violations by armed agents of the state against its citizens. In my work on media representations of violence, I investigate the construction of public narratives that excuse, justify, and obfuscate human rights violations in democratic states.
