I am Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Global Affairs at the University of Toronto Munk School of Global Affairs. I am currently on sabbatical through the end of the year at UC San Diego completing a book about information technology and military power, working title Technology at War: The Politics of Control Systems. I will be teaching security courses in the Munk School Masters of Global Affairs curriculum starting Spring 2016.
My research examines the impact of technology on international security, with a focus on cybersecurity, military innovation, and grand strategy. My publications have appeared in journals such as International Security, Security Studies, Journal of Strategic Studies, and Technology and Culture. I am the editor, with Tai Ming Cheung and Derek Reveron, of China and Cybersecurity: Espionage, Strategy, and Politics in the Digital Domain (Oxford University Press, 2015). I also lead a Minerva Initiative project, with Erik Gartzke at UC San Diego and Michael Nacht at Berkeley, on the implications of emerging technologies for the theory and practice of deterrence.
