Economist Headshots (08.21.19)-1402_low_resI am Defence Editor at The Economist, where I write on a wide range of military, nuclear, intelligence and other security issues. I was previously Senior Policy Fellow at Renewing the Centre, part of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, where I now serve on the Advisory Board. I have published extensively on Indian defence policy, Asian security and wider international relations.

I graduated with a starred first in politics and economics from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge University. I hold a masters degree in international relations from Harvard University. During 2007-8, I was a Kennedy Scholar from Britain to the United States. I taught economics and politics to undergraduates as a supervisor at Cambridge and a teaching fellow at Harvard. I am a graduate of the Columbia-Cornell Summer Workshop on the Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy (SWAMOS).

During 2015-16, I was a Research Associate at the Changing Character of War (CCW) Programme at Oxford University. I have lectured to the UK Defence Academy on a regular basis, as well as to a range of other political, diplomatic, and military audiences in Britain, Europe and Asia. I have also given evidence to the House of Commons’ Foreign Affairs Committee and Defence Committee several times.

A full list of my writing for The Economist and other outlets can be found here. My recent briefings have examined subjects including autonomous weapons, India-Pakistan air strikes, US-Iran tensions, military competition in space, the use of artificial intelligence in warfare and the future of aircraft carriers. My most recent book was Indian Power Projection: Arms, Influence and Ambition, published in RUSI’s Whitehall Paper series in 2016 [Amazon]. The Financial Times praised it as “admirably lucid”, and The Diplomat called it “the most up-to-date compendium of information on India’s hard power toolkit”.
