I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Public Policy and the School of Cybersecurity and Privacy (courtesy) at Georgia Institute of Technology. My research interests lie at the intersection of international security and technology, paying particular attention to the role of cyber power in domestic and international politics. My methodological areas of interest include spatial statistics, mathematical/computational modeling, text analysis, and network analysis.

My research has been published (or is forthcoming) in the International Studies Quarterly, Contemporary Security Policy, Policy & Internet, Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Public Opinion Quarterly, Journal of Global Security Studies, Journal of Strategic Security, Texas National Security Review, Harvard National Security Journal, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Cyber Defense Review, and several edited volumes and general-audience publications.

I am a co-founder and a co-organizer of the Digital Issues Discussion Group. I am also a founder and a co-organizer of the Cybersecurity Summer Institute.

I received degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (PhD), New York University (MSc), City University of New York John Jay College (B.A.) and Kyiv National Linguistic University (B.A.).
