Curriculum Vitae


Ph.D., Michigan State University, 2002. Fields of specialization include international relations theory, international cooperation and conflict, domestic politics and international relations, U.S. foreign policy, congress and foreign policy, international trade, economic sanctions, and military strategy.

Research Agenda:

My research analyzes how institutional and other domestic political factors affect the origin and resolution of international disputes, international trade, economic sanctions, sources of and implementation of American foreign policy. In more general terms, I study problems of interstate conflict and cooperation. Current research projects involve developing and testing theoretical models of U.S. use of force, asymmetric conflict, and the initiation and success of economic sanctions. I am also writing manuscripts on research design in international relations and topics in philosophy of science.
