I study the global politics of artificial intelligence. My goal is to gain insight and provide policy advice to help guide the development of AI for the common good. I believe the governance of AI is the most important global issue of the century.

I do this work at the University of Oxford, as Associate Professor in the International Politics of Artificial Intelligence, and as Director of the Centre for the Governance of AI (GovAI), at the Future of Humanity Institute.

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 statistical and methodological tools to enable more transparent, credible causal inference.
