I think a lot about faith, peace, and conflict, and what data can say about each. You can follow my work at Religional.

I'm currently finishing a doctorate in political science, and writing a dissertation on why some religious groups protest peacefully while others resort to violence.

Previously I was the founding editor of Democratic Vista and an original contributor to the Huffington Post.

I went to college at Harvard and have an M.Div. from Yale Divinity School.
