I am an assistant professor in the University of Idaho's Department of Politics and Philosophy, teaching courses in American politics, international relations, comparative politics, and public policy. My research focus is in international political economy, specifically in tax havens and their influence, intellectual property and military technology, and the role of finance in the projection of national power.
I received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Political Science from the University of Kentucky, as well as a Bachelors of Arts degree from The University of Chicago and a Masters of Arts from Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Idaho, I was an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati's Department of Political Science from 2006 to 2012, as well as a Visiting Instructor of Politics at Centre College during the Fall of 2016 and a visiting professor in the School of Strategic Landpower in the Department of National Strategy and Security at the Army War College for the 2020-2021 academic year.
