My research focuses on the ways that gender affects decision-making in conflict generally, and in relation to violent political behavior more specifically. I am the founder of Global Insight, a research, data, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) consultancy specializing in the use of data-driven and gender-sensitive methods in fragile states. Over the past decade, I've led Global Insight's portfolio of gender-based violence, peacebuilding/conflict, and humanitarian projects, working with UNHCR, UN Women, Save the Children, the UN Trust Fund, the International Rescue Committee, and countless other INGOs.
I am also a founding member and principal researcher with the Consortium for Research on Violent Extremism in Africa and the Women In Conflict Project. The Women In Conflict Project began in 2011, and in 2017 we launched the Women In Conflict podcast, of which I am the host.I've grown a thriving feminist community as the founder of and godmother to Continuum, a global think tank devoted to intentional, authentic, and interconnected feminism. The Continuum Collective is the organization's thousands-strong tribe of creators, connectors, provocateurs, raconteurs, intellectuals, and activists that drive the movement. Continuum hosts a variety of live and virtual events, produces the Radicals & Revolutionaries Lab podcast, leads deep-dive dialogues, designs and facilitates workshops and trainings, and officiates a vibrant online forum.
