I'm a research scientist with the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) and adjunct professor at the UC San Diego School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS).
My research examines the impact of technology on international security, to include topics in cybersecurity, deterrence theory, Chinese military affairs, and unconventional warfare. My publications have appeared in journals such as International Security, Security Studies, and Technology and Culture.
I earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I was a member of the Security Studies Program and the Program on Emerging Technologies, and I hold 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.
