Professor Stam's research focuses on the dynamics of armed conflict between and within states. His current projects include developing a GIS model of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, investigating political leaders' family structure and social development and their concomitant effects on leaders' willingness to take risks once in office, and modeling the interactive effects of military training and combat trauma on veterans' propensity to engage in post-service criminal behavior.
