Myers is pursuing a PhD in Political Science at Duke University. Her sub-field is Security, Peace, & Conflict. Her research focuses on civil conflict and political violence. She is particularly interested in the enduring impact of civil conflict on peacetime politics and in how political violence reshapes social networks and state-society relations. Prior to starting graduate school she was a Research Associate for the Reagan-Fascell Fellowship Program at the National Endowment for Democracy. She worked with the Reagan-Fascell Fellows, a group of international scholars, journalists, and activists, on projects designed to promote human rights and democracy. She provided substantive input on the shape and direction of Fellows’ projects, offered research and editorial assistance, and helped connect Fellows to professionals in DC working on topics related to their products. Following her fellowship she worked as a Research Associate at the Alliance for Peacebuilding.
