I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Boston University.  My research interests include how states economically mobilize for national security requirements and how domestic political and economic considerations influence foreign policy and the persecution of conflict.

In addition to academic research, I am committed to promoting the study of the political economy of national security.  I am the founder and Co-Director of Boston University’s Pardee School Project for the Political Economy of Security.

I teach classes focused on the political economy of national security, the U.S. Defense budget, international conflict, nuclear security, and a variety of other issues in the field of International Relations.
