My research program comes out of international relations and security studies literature. It focuses on US – China relations, foreign policy and energy policy. Various projects examine the nature of US – China relations and China’s political influence as evidenced through political, economic and military developments. My current book project examines China’s changing approach to energy security and the resulting outcomes on regional and US relations, global energy market impact and China’s military expansion as it relates to energy issues.
