Andrew J. Coe

Assistant Professor

Andrew J. Coe earned his PhD from Harvard University in 2012.  His work is devoted to understanding the causes and consequences of violent conflict in human civilization.  His research involves the development and analysis of game-theoretic models of various aspects of conflict, often drawing on the principles of economic theory and his experience working for the U.S. government on national security policy.  He has taught courses on formal models of politics, international security, the nature of war, the politics of weapons of mass destruction, and the economic analysis of conflict.
