Hello! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. In the 2017–2018 academic year, I am a visitor at the Wallis Institute of Political Economy at the University of Rochester. I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Rochester in 2014.

My research focuses on the political economy of conflict and diplomacy. My CV is available here, and my working papers can be viewed on my research page. Many of my research projects, statistical software packages, and course materials can be found on GitHub.

I can be reached via email at brenton.kenkel@vanderbilt.edu.
