For a current copy of my CV (PDF) click here.

I’m a PhD candidate in the political science department at the George Washington University and a PhD candidate-in-residence at the Institute for Security and Conflict Studies at GWU’s Elliott School of International Affairs.

My dissertation research examines the effects of strategic competition, domestic institutions and technological innovation on the development of nuclear command and control systems in the United States and Russia. I also work on extended nuclear deterrence and on the strategic implications of new technologies. You can find a complete list of projects by clicking the projects link above.

I’m also the deputy director of the Nuclear Security Working Group—a bipartisan network of national security experts and officials who promote pragmatic discourse on nuclear policy. For more on the NSWG, check out our website.
