David Ohls

Professorial Lecturer School of International Service

Dave Ohls does research on international security and international political economy, with a particular attention to links between the two. His current projects include analyzing the conflict-dampening effects of indirect trade networks, exploring the radicalization and counter-terrorism effects of drone strike campaigns, modeling the dynamics of costly signaling in the context of endogenous power shifts brought on by weapons acquisition, assessing the economic and political impacts of GATT/WTO accession, reevaluating of the broader-deeper trade-off in international institutional contracting, and identifying the relationship between coups and civil wars as related forms of violent leadership turnover. He has a particular interest in game theoretic/formal modeling approaches to international relations, as well as quantitative empirical scholarship.
