"Will be the go-to account of American intelligence reform."

- Robert Jervis

Welcome.

I am a political scientist serving as Associate Professor in the Department of Government at Smith College, where I teach courses in U.S. foreign policy, international relations, war, and intelligence. My research focuses on the politics of U.S. intelligence policy and the organizational dynamics of information-based bureaucracies. I am also a co-director of the Bridging the Gap Project, which seeks to build bridges between academia and the policy world. My book The CIA and the Politics of US Intelligence Reform was published by Cambridge University Press in summer 2017.
