I have published research on U.S.-Soviet nuclear arms control, the consequences of nuclear proliferation, the denuclearization process in Argentina and Brazil, and strategies for countering WMD proliferation such as deterrence and assurance. I have also done work on strategies for combating terrorism. In addition to my academic experience, I have worked at several NGOs concerned with U.S. defense and nuclear weapons policies. This includes a previous stint at MIIS at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, during which time I served as Editor of The Nonproliferation Review.
