Short Biography
I'm an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, and recipient of a 2021-2022 Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship for Tenured International Relations Scholars (IAF-TIRS). My expertise is in transatlantic security, national security and European security and defense, including NATO, the EU and OSCE. Issue areas include transatlantic security cooperation, collective defense, crisis management, military operations (e.g. Afghanistan), coalition warfare, strategy, learning, adaptation, organizational change, gender and diplomacy. I'm the author of two books: NATO's Lessons in Crisis : Institutional Memory in International Organizations (Oxford UP, 2018) and Time to React : The Efficiency of International Organizations in Crisis Response (Oxford UP, 2014). My research appears in or is forthcoming in journals such as European Journal of International Relations, Journal of Politics, Review of International Organizations, European Security and Global Governance. I've received more than $438,000 in research funds from agencies including the NSF, Fulbright and NATO (see below). I've also interviewed >250 high-level political and military officials.
