Consulting and Media

I have consulted for government ministries and public outfits on issues related to European security, information warfare, asymmetric warfare, and U.S. strategy towards the Asian Pacific. Some of my research has been funded by the U.S. Army War College, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States, and the Canadian Department of National Defence.

 

I am available to translate academic research, provide background information and subject matter expertise, and offer risk assessments for organizations striving to develop strategic plans for their projects.

I am also available to the media to comment on subjects pertaining to European military affairs. I have appeared in the past on television and radio at the national and local levels (e.g., CTV's Your Morning) to discuss a variety of topics including the war in eastern Ukraine, Russian disinformation, Huawei, and NATO deterrence and defence measures.

 

My research has been quoted or linked in various international media outlets.
