2015 Fellow Spotlight: Alexander Davies

Alexander Davies
Home Institution: Cornell University
International Security and Computer Science

“The lectures delivered by CNS staff were invaluable in broadening my understanding of nonproliferation. It was clear that every staff member loved their field and they explained difficult aspects of nonproliferation in an interesting and cogent manner…My project looked at how nuclear weapons may affect alliance decisions by states. It combined international relations theory with nonproliferation. [This work] helped me gain insight into academic research within the social sciences, something that I had not done before. It was great to have the opportunity to work in this field.”
