I am an Assistant Professor of International Affairs with the George HW Bush School of Government at Texas A&M University. My research focuses on broad issues of U.S. foreign policy, Cold War history, international relations theory, and international security, with particular emphasis on grand strategy and alliance politics. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and previously held fellowships with Harvard University, George Washington University, Dartmouth College, and the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars.
My book, Rising Titans, Falling Giants: Rising States and the Fate of Declining Great Powers is forthcoming with Cornell University Press in 2018 (a copy can be ordered here). Additional research has appeared in International Security, Foreign Affairs, The Washington Quarterly, and other venues.
