Research

 

I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at Temple University. I am also Senior Fellow for Nuclear Security Studies for the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation.

 

I teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level on international relations theory, international security, international organizations and nuclear weapons policy and strategy.

 

My research encompasses a number of issues in applying Principal-Agent Theory to international cooperation on nuclear weapons, including measures of delegation, and threats; international preferences; the importance of biased informational agents; and the problems of international enforcement. I am completing a book manuscript examining the evolution of political authority of the International Atomic Energy Agency (I.A.E.A.).
