Dr. Braumoeller’s research interests lie in computational models of international order and interstate conflict and in the development of new statistical methods suitable for social-science theories. He received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, and he held faculty positions at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Harvard University before moving to Ohio State. His most recent book, Only the Dead: The Persistence of War in the Modern Age, demonstrates that the evidence doesn't support the decline-of-war thesis propounded by scholars like Steven Pinker. He is currently involved in projects on the complex relationship between international order and international conflict and the origins of political order more generally. Dr. Braumoeller co-leads TDAI’s Computational Social Sciences community of practice.
