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 currently lead the emerging technology and cybersecurity portfolios at the Center for Security in Politics, serve as Co-Faculty Director of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity on campus, and as Deputy Director of the Berkeley APEC Study Center. I am also a research affiliate of the University of California’s Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation.

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.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley’s Department of Political Science in 2019.

Over the past decade, I have served in roles at Sandia National Laboratories, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Center for Global Security Research, and the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC. I am also an alum of the Hans J. Morgenthau Fellow program.
