About me

I am an assistant professor of political science at Colorado State University, where I teach classes on international security, U.S. foreign policy, and International Relations theory.

Before coming to CSU, I spent one year teaching at Earlham College in Indiana. I received my Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin, where I was a graduate fellow of the Clements Center for National Security, and also hold degrees from SOAS, University of London and the University of Edinburgh.

In addition to my scholarly work, I occasionally write commentary and analysis on international, US, and British politics. Between 2014 and 2016, I was a regular feature contributor to the online edition of the National Interest magazine. I am an advisor at Gulf State Analytics, a geopolitical risk consultancy based in Washington, DC.

Most of all, I am a proud Wiganer.
