I work on the governance of emerging technologies, with a focus on artificial intelligence. I am a Senior Research Scientist at Google DeepMind working on long-term strategy and AI governance. Prior to Google DeepMind, I was Associate Professor of Government at Wesleyan University and faculty at University of California Santa Barbara focusing on international relations.
My research has also addressed foreign policy and public opinion, nationalism and war. My recent book, The Suffragist Peace: How Women Shape the Politics of War, is available now with Oxford University Press. My first book, The Consequences of Humiliation: Anger and Status in World Politics, was published by Cornell University Press in 2020.
