I write a regular monthly column at The Diplomat.
I write twice month for the Interpreter blog-line of the Lowy Institute in Australia.
I write each month for the Economist Intelligence Unit, but that writing is contractually embargoed.
Here is my Twitter page.
Here is my Facebook page.
Here is my Linked-In page.
My television news appearances, on BBC and Channel NewsAsia mostly, can be watched here.
I have written for a lot of other outlets over the years: Foreign Affairs, the IR blog Duck of Minerva, The National Interest, CNN-GPS, Newsweek, Al Jazeera, and the Korean partner of the International Herald Tribune.
I received my PhD in political science from Ohio State University, with a specialization in international relations and political theory. My IR subfields are international security and international organization.
My best topical & regional areas are:
US Foreign Policy
International Relations Theory
International Monetary Fund
In Busan, I teach US foreign policy, Globalization, Post-9/11 Security, basic IR theory, International Organization, and US politics.
My language training includes: German, French, Russian, Latin, Korean, classical Greek
I lived in Europe for 4 years. I have lived in Korea since summer 2008. I have travelled to about 40 different countries, including North Korea.
In my other life, I would have been a screenwiter, a musician, or a classicist. I enjoy film a lot and write about infrequently here. I also enjoy classical music very much (Austro-Germans mostly), and I read a lot of course. I find antiquity so fascinating I took two extra years of grad school just to study Greek and Latin. Reading Socrates’ ‘Apology’ in the original is one great achievements of my life.
And I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t admit how much time I like to waste on Xbox. Grade-schoolers mocking me over the headset as they blow me up in ‘Halo’ seems to be my gaming fate. Send me a friend request at gamertag ‘Darth Homer.’
Thanks for coming to my site. I hope you like it.
