Brandon Valeriano, Ph.D.
Karl Deutsch “Today war is a greater threat to human life than famine or disease…In our time, research on the causes of war and ways to contain, control, and finally abolish all-out war has become an expression of mankind’s will to live.”
I currently serve as the Donald Bren Chair of Military Innovation at the Marine Corps University. My work also includes serving as a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute and as Senior Advisor to the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.
My research is focused on cyber security, popular culture and conflict, race and ethnicity politics, and international conflict.
Our 2018 book is Cyber Strategy, now available from Amazon and OUP.
I serve as the Area Editor for International Relations and Strategy for the Journal of Cybersecurity and a General Editor for the Oxford University Press Book Series on Disruptive Technology and International Security.
