Alexander Lanoszka, PhD

Assistant Professor of International Relations

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and Fellow in the Balsillie School of International Affairs at the University of Waterloo.


I was previously a Lecturer in the Department of International Politics at City, University of London, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College, and a Stanton Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Security Studies Program. In May 2014, I completed my doctorate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University.


My research addresses issues in alliance politics, nuclear strategy, and theories of war, and has appeared in International Security, Security Studies, International Affairs, and elsewhere. I have done work on East Asia but Europe is my primary regional focus, with special emphasis on Central and Northeastern Europe. Outside of work, my biggest passion is in music.

I have two places that I consider home: Windsor-Detroit and Krakow, Poland.
