A member of the Government Department’s faculty since 2000, I teach and conduct research on international relations, with an emphasis on international security and foreign policy. Before coming here, I taught at Princeton and Georgetown. I graduated with a degree in international relations from Beloit College, worked as a legislative aid in the U.S. House of Representatives and did my graduate work at Yale University, earning an MA in interntional relations and PhD in Political Science. My personal website has all the details on current research and teaching.
