About Me

My research examines the relationship between international commerce and interstate relations — particularly militarized disputes and war. I do so by analyzing whether the degree of business power on foreign policy making determines if bilateral trade will reduce the probability of international conflict.

In the process of conducting this investigation, I have spent considerable time in Colombia and Venezuela  interviewing business and political elites.

I am also developing a paper on the aggressiveness of petro-states that demonstrates how the lack of private sector influence in oil dependent states reduces the commercial incentives towards peace.
