He is editor of the widely cited website Jihadology.net, the most important primary source archive for global jihadi materials. He is a frequent contributor to Foreign Policy and The Atlantic, and has authored the New America Foundation’s study “The State of the Global Jihad Online” (2013). He holds a BA in Government and Middle Eastern Studies from Indiana University and an M.A. in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies from Brandeis University, and is currently pursuing a PhD in War Studies at King’s College London.
