I study how states manage strategic challenges in international security. My book project, Strategies of Manipulation, examines how states exercise control in military partnerships. Focusing on the sharing of military power, I argue that states prevent misuse by manipulating both the security threats that partners confront and the coercive capabilities to which they have access. This research is part of a broader agenda on the strategic management of foreign policy and research tools for the analysis of foreign policy effects.
I have developed and taught three courses for Stanford undergraduates and International Policy Studies Master's students on international relations theory and evidence-based foreign policy design. I previously worked in the U.S. government (State, DHS, Congress) and occasionally indulge in political philosophy.
