Research Interests:

I do research on protest and coercion. Since I use dynamic models, I also work to collect valid interval data on protest and coercion, as well as collective action. We code and upload protest and coercion data in 28 European countries from 1980 through 1995 for every day.You will now find data on historical civil wars as well.
