United States Institute of Peace

Washington, DC, United States
Joined July 2020


Presence in: Afghanistan
Focus: Peace-building & Transitional Justice

The United States Institute of Peace is a national, nonpartisan, independent institute, founded by Congress and dedicated to the proposition that a world without violent conflict is possible, practical, and essential for U.S. and global security. In conflict zones abroad, the Institute works with local partners to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict. To reduce future crises and the need for costly interventions, USIP works with governments and civil societies to build local capacities to manage conflict peacefully. The Institute pursues its mission by linking research, policy, training, analysis, and direct action to support those who are working to build a more peaceful, inclusive world.

With specializations in international human rights, peacebuilding, transitional justice, and the development of rule of law, I am passionate about reforming legal systems and governmental practices and policies to increase equality before the law, particularly for marginalized populations and in post-conflict societies. The regional focus of my work and study has primarily been Central Europe, the Western Balkans, and Sub-Saharan, Francophone Africa, particularly the Sahel, as well as Chicago, IL, US.
