Greetings! I am an assistant professor of political science at Université Laval in Québec City, Canada. I received my Ph.D. in political science in 2006 from Binghamton University, SUNY where I also received my M.A. in 2004. I received my B.A. in International Relations with a minor in North Atlantic Security Studies from Kent State University in 2000.
My areas of specialization include international relations, quantitative methods, and comparative politics. My research interests broadly center around world politics with particular emphasis on international security and interstate cooperation. My dissertation focused on interstate alliance formation behavior, however my future research agenda will focus on state strategy and how states use cooperative endeavors (of various types) to attain security related goals.
