Department of Political Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am also an affiliated researcher and contributor to the Cross-Domain Deterrence Project at the University of California, San Diego. From 2014-2015, I was a Stanton Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow in the International Security Program/Project on Managing the Atom at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. In July 2014, I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. My research interests lie in international security and conflict, with a specialization in nuclear nonproliferation/counter-proliferation, extended deterrence, nuclear latency, force structure, and deterrence and coercion strategy. My book, The Politics of Nuclear Reversal, explores the conditions under which states that have started nuclear weapons programs stop their pursuit.
