Biography

Assistant Professor: Ph.D., MIT; B.A., Cornell University. His dissertation studies rationalist causes of war with randomized experiments, historical research, and a comparative analysis of all interstate wars fought in East Asia since 1900. His research combines substantive interests with practical methodological applications. Substantive interests: Global-level strategic interactions, international security, East Asia, causes and prevention of war. Methodological interest: Application of experimental methods to high-stake questions that are difficult to address with observational data - such as the causes of nuclear war, the credibility of costly signals, and the vote-share effects of alternative electoral systems.

Current research: (i) Efficacious signaling and communication between states; (ii) the dynamics of crisis deescalation; (iii) nationalism and identity effects in Sino-Japanese disputes (with Alastair Iain Johnston). The third project is an attempt to bridge the rationalist and constructivist traditions in international relations, in order to better understand how identity concerns impact the calculus of conflict.
