This site features my research interests and current work. There will be links to working papers and sites of interest. My main work is in International Relations Theory, broadly defined. I am developing an architectonic for International Relations Theory called Phenomenological Complexity Theory. I specialize in strategic security studies, Iran, and the Middle East.

Please visit my Iranian Foreign Policy Analysis site for my analysis and discussion of Iranian politics and policy.
