Bio

As assistant director of the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict, I draw on the resources of the largest public university in the United States to help build interdisciplinary research and engagement teams that address diverse issues relating to the dynamics of religion and conflict in national, international and global affairs. With a portfolio that ranges from basic research to applied projects, the Center's network of researchers addresses fundamental issues in the study of religion, intergroup conflict, and peace studies; religion, secularization, and conflict; religion, science and technology; and religion and gender in international affairs. The Center has advanced research in countering violent extremism through cross-regional studies focused on forms of cultural resistance to extremism and partnered on the development of social media analytics for mapping the online dynamics of extremist and counter-extremist discourse in real time. The Center also engages in capacity building projects with partner universities, having worked with universities in Indonesia, Bosnia-Herzogovina, and most recently Pakistan.
