How are violence and ex­ternal interventions in armed conflicts related, and how can we statistically model and ex­plain these processes?

My research uses quantitative methods to better under­stand and describe the dynamics of armed conflict. I am primarily in­terested in three topic areas: When and with which out­comes do external interventions and peace processes occur in intra-state conflicts? How does ex­posure to violence affect indi­vidual identity, attitudes, and behavior? How can we analyze data most effectively to under­stand these phenomena more accurately?
