My primary research interest lies in the problems of foreign policy.  I am interested in the ways that foreign policy is made, how it is implemented, and what effects those policies have on the relationships between states.  My main research is on the dynamics of major conventional arms transfers both at the micro (state) and macro (international system) levels.  I am interested in the macro-level question of long-term policy implications of the transfer of coercive capabilities between states, but also the micro-level decision-making that leads to it.  I am also interested in the security of individuals and groups within states, and ways that security can be restored in conflict situations.
