Lindsey’s research primarily focuses on the intersection of gender and conflict. She is currently examining how competition between rebel groups influences the decision to employ female combatants, what the direct and indirect effects of women’s participation in violence are for intrastate conflict, and how Western gender norms affect nuclear threat perception. Overall, she is curious about how normative masculinities and femininities impact political violence and how international relations research can better incorporate feminist theories moving forward. Lindsey graduated summa cum laude from the honors college at Arizona State University, with degrees in political science and global studies and a minor in women & gender studies.
