I am an Associate Professor at the University of New Mexico in the Department of Political Science. My major substantive field is international relations, although I consider myself something of a general theorist. I use the tools of positive political theory and empirical methodology to examine questions regarding conflict and cooperation in human behavior. My first exposure to these tools--especially rational choice--was at the University of Rochester where I earned a B.A. in Political Science. I did my graduate work (M.A. and Ph.D.) in the Political Science department at Michigan State University. My dissertation examined dispute initiation between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
