My research expertise is in the area of international security, specifically examining the relationship between emergent weapons technologies and international laws and norms surrounding the use of military force. I examine the legal and normative implications of remote warfare, such as the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in counter-terrorism operations, as well as civil society’s response to these post-9/11 national security policies.
