I am an Assistant Professor of Practice in Cybersecurity at the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Information, and Founder and Faculty Director of the Berkeley Risk and Security Lab.
Broadly, I study the intersection of technology, politics, and security. My recent research focuses on cybersecurity, nuclear weapons policy, wargaming, and emerging military technologies.
I have a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley’s Department of Political Science and have served as a Bridging the Gap New Era fellow, Hans J. Morgenthau fellow at Notre Dame University, a non-resident fellow at the Brute Krulak Center at Marine Corps University, faculty director at the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, and deputy director at the Berkeley APEC Study Center.
My work has appeared in Science, the Journal of Cyber Policy, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists among other outlets and has been variously supported by the Founder’s Pledge Fund, Carnegie Corporation of New York, MacArthur Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Nuclear Science and Security Consortium.
