My research examines the long-term political implications of emerging technologies, with a focus on artificial intelligence. I also study public opinion, social psychology, nationalism and war. I am a Senior Research Affiliate at the Centre for the Governance of AI in Oxford.


My first book, The Consequences of Humiliation: Anger and Status  in World Politics, came out at Cornell University Press in 2020. My second book, The Suffragist Peace, on the effect of women voters on war and peace, is forthcoming with Oxford University Press. 

I have a background in neuroscience and international politics and have taught at Wesleyan University and the University of California Santa Barbara.
