Andrew Coe is a Stanton nuclear security fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). He is also assistant professor of international relations at the University of Southern California and an adjunct member of the research staff at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA).
Dr. Coe joined CFR after completing his PhD in political science at Harvard University. At Harvard, he specialized in game theory and political economy, wrote his dissertation on the economic origins of war and peace, and also developed a series of game-theoretic models of weapons proliferation and preventive war. Previously, he worked at IDA on issues of international security and defense organization. While there, he helped design the system used by the Department of Homeland Security to compare the risks of different terrorist attacks, was principal author of several of the war scenarios used to guide planning for the Department of Defense, advised the U.S. Special Operations Command on reorganizing itself to suit its then-new roles and missions in the War on Terrorism, and studied the consequences of further nuclear proliferation and new U.S. strategic capabilities.
