I'm an Assistant Research Scientist at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) with the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC). I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I was a member of the Security Studies Program and the Program on Emerging Technologies. I also have an M.S. in Computer Science and B.S.in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University, and I have served in the U.S. Navy in Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
My research examines the impact of the information revolution on international relations, with a focus on cybersecurity, the political economy of information security in China, and unconventional warfare.
To escape from all this technology, I like to run through the mountains and climb rocks (where, admittedly, some technology is decidedly useful).
