Margaret Foster

Margaret Foster is a PhD candidate specializing in Security, Peace, and Conflict. Her dissertation proposes a theory of grassroots-driven, "bottom-up," transformation in resource-constrained organizations. Additional projects explore the dynamics of militant groups and include analysis of organizational structures in militant groups. Her research uses a mixed-methods approach, combining qualitative case studies with quantitative and computational methods, particularly applied Bayesian statistics, text-as-data, and network analysis.
