Academic Research

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 ReviewJournal of Strategic Studies, Foreign Policy Analysis, Journal of Global Security StudiesInternational Relations of the Asia-PacificSurvival, Asia Policy, Naval War College Review, Contemporary Security Policy, Korean Journal of Defense AnalysisComparative Strategy, and Asian Security.
