His research focused on violent political conflict, and more specifically: dissent and repression; human rights; protest, rebellion, and terror; forced migration; and research design and political methodology. Will's Google Scholar Profile is here, and SSRN page here. His anti-heros are the little boy in Hans Christian Anderson's The King who Wore No Clothes, Holden Caufield in Catcher in the Rye, and Yossarian inCatch-22.
