  • About

    Carly Wayne is a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Michigan. Her research interests lie at the intersection of international relations, security studies and political psychology. Specifically, she is interested in exploring the strategic and psychological dimensions of non-conventional warfare, terrorism in particular. Her research integrates findings from the study of emotions with insights derived from bargaining models of war in order to elucidate the strategic interaction between terrorists and the civilian populations they target , exploring the ways in which terrorist groups pursuing divergent political goals attempt to strategically manipulate distinct emotional and political responses among civilian populations. Carly also studies the behavioral micro-foundations of states’ diplomatic and military policies, investigating the impact of cognitive, emotional and motivational phenomena on leaders’ crisis decision making.
