Friedman.JeffNote: I am on leave for the 2017-18 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, France.

I am an Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College, where I study national security decision making. I am particularly interested in understanding how uncertainty shapes major policy choices. Much of my work in this area revolves around the challenge of assessing probability. In other projects, I am examining how voters set priorities for managing public risks like terrorism and climate change, and how people evaluate the cost-effectiveness of massive government expenditures. At Dartmouth, I teach courses on foreign policy decision making, civil conflict, intelligence analysis, and research methods in security studies.

Here is a link to my CV. My research has been published by Intelligence and National Security, International OrganizationInternational SecurityInternational Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Conflict ResolutionPolitical PsychologySecurity Studies, and the U.S. Army War College. Prior to joining Dartmouth’s Government Department, I held fellowships at the Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and the Tobin Project. I received my Ph.D. from the Harvard Kennedy School in 2013.
