I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Francis Marion University. I have previously taught at the University of Washington, Saint Anselm College, Seattle University, and Cornish College. I have also worked as a military analyst for the National Bureau of Asian Research in Seattle, WA and served for nine years as an officer in the US Army Reserve. From 1999-2000, I was a Ford Foundation Crossing Borders Fellow at the University of Iowa, an interdisciplinary fellowship that promoted connections across the social sciences and humanities.
My research and teaching interests include international relations theory, state formation and sovereignty, security studies, revolutions, political culture, and social theory (broadly conceived). I have published in International Political Sociology, the International Studies Compendium, and Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions, as well as several book chapters. With Brent J. Steele, I am the editor of Theory and Application of the “Generation” in International Relations and Politics (Palgrave, 2012). Most recently, I have received offers to revise and resubmit articles at Terrorism and Political Violence and Armed Forces and Society.
