I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale University and a Research Associate at the Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford. My research seeks to understand the causes of world peace and stability. 

My earlier work examined the causes of the liberal peace, and the role of reputation and honor as motives for war. Along the way I developed methodological tools and approaches to enable more transparent, credible causal inference. 

My current research focuses on the international politics of transformative artificial intelligence, which I believe poses existential challenges and opportunities. As part of this I consult for governments, AI labs, and non-profits.
