My research and teaching activities cover the fields of Security Studies (with a current focus on counter-terrorism), Conflict Analysis, Military Sociology, Theories of Revolution, and Contentious Politics.

In addition, I support the development and maintenance of the Institute's international partnerships and provide editorial assistance for its international publications.

I received my BA in International Studies from the University of Washington, Seattle (2003); my MSc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics (2004); and my PhD in International Relations from the University of Kent in Brussels (2010).

Recent publications include
Open Participatory Security: Unifying Technology, Citizens, and the State (Rowman & Littlefield 2017), The Transition to National Armies in the Former Soviet Republics, 1988-2005 (Routledge, 2013), articles in in Armed Forces & Society (2014), Studies in Conflict & Terrorism (2014), European Security (2015, print edition 2016), and Security Studies (to appear in December 2016).
