My Research:

        I have research projects in several areas with many different coauthors.  One of my more prominent projects explore how intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) prevent countries from becoming involved in wars and other militarized disputes.  Much of my other work combines economics and politics, especially with a focus on international cooperation and conflict.  Some of my work in this area includes the issues of international trade, economic development, democracy, civil war, border issues, and other topics in international political economy.
