Most of my research concerns the intersection of US strategy and the Asia-Pacific. Within and sometimes beyond this broad theme, I’m continuously drawn to the same handful of topics:
- East Asian security
- Strategic studies
- History of US relations in Asia
- Policy-relevant international relations theory
- Language and discourses of security
- Deterrence theory
- Defense strategy
- U.S. foreign policy and grand strategy
- Technological change and power
- Korean and Japanese studies
My CV can be found here. Details on my military and policy experience can be provided upon request. My peer-reviewed journal articles (listed in my CV) include International Studies Review, Journal of Strategic Studies, Foreign Policy Analysis, Journal of Global Security Studies, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, Survival, Asia Policy, Naval War College Review, Contemporary Security Policy, Korean Journal of Defense Analysis, Comparative Strategy, and Asian Security.
