Jeffrey Friedman is an assistant professor of government at Dartmouth College, where he studies national security and decision making. He is particularly interested in understanding how uncertainty shapes major policy choices. Much of his work in this area revolves around the challenge of assessing probability. He is also working on several projects that examine how the U.S. government allocates money to combat risks like war, terrorism, climate change and violent crime. At Dartmouth, he teach courses on foreign policy decision making, civil conflict, intelligence analysis and research methods in security studies.
His research has been published by "International Organization, International Security, International Studies Quarterly"; "Intelligence and National Security"; the "Journal of Conflict Resolution"; "Political Psychology, Security Studies"; and the U.S. Army War College. He is committed to interdisciplinary scholarship, and has held fellowships at five interdisciplinary centers: the Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, the Tobin Project and the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, France. He received his Ph.D. from the Harvard Kennedy School in 2013.
