My research explores the politics of multilateral cooperation, particularly in the governance of weapons. My research interests focus on the intersection of international security and international institutions.
In my dissertation, I ask why actors pursue multilateral agreements to regulate different weapons, and what goals such agreements serve. In doing so, I explore the differences between initiatives led by powerful states and initiatives led by smaller states.
In other projects, I explore challenges to the US-led world order and why global governance takes particular forms for different issues.
