I am a Ph.D. student in George Mason's Computational Social Science program, and work for BAE Systems. I have spent the last 10 years working on complex national security problems, with a particular emphasis on developing computational methods and analytic tools to explore the theory and history of military revolutions and state failure. My research interest is on the development of an ecological theory of international relations, which seeks to generate an international system composed of state and non-state actors out of boundedly rational agents.

I have a BA in Political Science from Boston University (1997), and an MA in Security Studies from Georgetown University (1999).
