About me

I came to UWE in September 2012. Previously I was based at Cardiff University. I serve as Editor-in-Chief and Director of E-International Relations, the world's leading open access international relations website.

In addition to my academic publications (see below), I write frequently for E-International Relations, and my political commentary has featured in publications such as The National Interestopen Democracy and RealClearWorld.

My main academic interests are in US foreign policy. The bulk of my academic research to date has explored US-Iran relations during the Cold War.

I am an advocate for open access publishing, including in student textbooks. In 2017 I published the first two open access textbooks in the field of International Relations.
