I am Associate Professor of Political Science and faculty director of the Committee on International Relations (a one-year MA program) at the University of Chicago. My research focuses on political violence and international security in South Asia. My book, Networks of Rebellion: Explaining Insurgent Cohesion and Collapse, was published by Cornell University Press in 2014. I am currently finishing a book about “armed politics” in South Asia. New research agendas examine the domestic politics of international relations in South Asia and the trajectories of radical movements. I tweet @pstanpolitics and post snapshots on Flickr; I also have a less interesting Google Scholar page.
