Matthew Fuhrmann is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University. He previously held research fellowships at Harvard University (2007-08) and the Council on Foreign Relations (2010-11).
His research and teaching focuses on international security, foreign policy, and international institutions. He is particularly interested in the role of military power in international politics: How and why do military technologies spread? What effect does the global diffusion of military power have on the way that countries behave? Much of his existing research probes these questions by examining the politics of nuclear proliferation.
His work has been published or conditionally accepted in peer reviewed journals such as British Journal of Political Science, International Organization, International Security, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Journal of Peace Research.
