Joseph M. Parent
I grew up in Wisconsin, went to college at the University of Chicago, and got my PhD at Columbia. My research looks at how shifts in power affect conflict. I've written a couple books, Uniting States and American Conspiracy Theories (with Joe Uscinski), published some articles, assisted the National Intelligence Council on its Global Trends 2030 report, and served as a fellow at the Norwegian Nobel Institute. In my free time, I play the guitar badly, pretend to exercise, try to keep up with family and friends, and read anything in arm's reach.
