I am a political sociologist who uses quantitative and historical methods to study ethnic conflict. My current research focuses on the post-war refugee returns and on the drivers of anti-minority sentiments. My research was published in Ethnic and Racial Studies, International Migration, Journal of Refugee Studies, Human Rights Quarterly, Political Psychology, Europe-Asia Studies, Ethnopolitics, and European History Quarterly. My research projects were supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada; European Institutes for Advanced Study; Nuffield College, The University of Oxford; European Commission; and the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, Saint Mary’s University. For a list of publications, please see:

I am interested in supervising Doctoral, Masters, and Honours students who would like to specialize in study of forced migration, far right, or ethnic conflict. I often work with and co-author publications with students, such as our articles in Ethnic and Racial Studies (with Alicia LaPierre), in Journal of Refugee Studies (with Samantha Parsons) and in Ethnopolitics (with Sean Metivier).
