I am assistant professor of Space Seminar and International Security at Air University with the West Space Seminar, Air War College. Prior to my current position, I taught for many years at Kansas State University.

Currently, I am working on mapping current and past power configurations in space politics in order to project their (potential) long-term effects on conventional international relations on the ground. Within this general theme, I have two main projects: (a) building a quantitative database on space power capabilities, and (b) completing a book on space security examining key issues related to security in/from/via space (contracted with the MIT Press). I am also working on testing the predictive power of leading IR theories against observed outcomes, and exploring empirical links between relative deprivation and political instability.
