Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. I received my PhD in Political Science in 2017 from the University of Rochester. In my research, I focus on questions at the intersection of international conflict and cooperation. More specifically, I utilize both formal theory and statistical methods to analyze military cooperation in the international system. I am interested in both the conditions that lead to military cooperation, as well as the influence of realized military cooperation on international conflict outcomes.

Please feel free to take a look around, download a copy of my CV, and peruse my research. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at bradley.carl.smith@gmail.com.
