I'm an assistant research scientist with the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation, assistant adjunct professor at the UC San Diego School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (where I teach courses in the IR/PS Security of the Asia Pacific career track), and an Oxford Martin Associate with the Oxford Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre.
My research examines the impact of technology on international security, to include topics in 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 earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an M.S. in Computer Science and B.S. in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University. I have also served as a U.S. naval officer with assignments in Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
To escape from technology, I run through the mountains and climb rocks.
