I am a political scientist studying international development with a focus on law, property rights and post-conflict return migration. I like all things property-related, so I use GIS in my research and geocache and hike for fun. My research has taken me to Kosovo, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Liberia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Serbia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Vietnam. I am also a Christian (Mennonite) and I like reading theology in my spare time. When I am not hanging out with my entertaining family or working, I engage in advocacy on hunger and poverty in the US and abroad.
