Jessica Sun's work uses formal theory to study conflict and violence. She studies state security forces and their tactics, ranging from repression broadly to indiscriminate violence against both civilians and infrastructure. Additionally her interests include counterinsurgency and post-conflict reconstruction of state security forces.
