Picture: Because what strategist or IR scholar doesn't associate themselves with chess imagery?

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
  • Foreign policy analysis
  • Language and discourses of security
  • Deterrence theory
  • Defense strategy
  • U.S. foreign policy and grand strategy
  • Technological change and power
  • Korean and Japanese studies
