I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale University and a Research Associate at the Future of Humanity Institute, Oxford University. My research seeks to understand the causes of world peace and stability. Specifically, my research has examined the causes of the liberal peace, and the role of reputation and honor as motives for war. Along the way I have developed methodological tools and approaches to enable more transparent, credible causal inference. I am beginning research on the international political and policy considerations arising from transformative artificial intelligence, which I believe poses existential challenges and opportunities. I teach courses on these topics, in the Ph.D. and undergraduate programs.
