His research focuses on international order, especially as it relates to energy and the environment. His recent book Partial Hegemony: Oil Politics and International Order (Oxford University Press, 2021) investigates how countries and other actors have been able to sustain meaningful international governing arrangements to solve tough problems, and uses that history to consider climate change. His previous book was Petro-Aggression: When Oil Causes War (Cambridge University Press, 2013). His research has been published in International Organization, International Security, International Studies Quarterly, World Politics, Foreign Affairs, and other journals. Prior to Brown University, he worked at McKinsey & Company, the World Bank, and American University.
