I’m a Melbourne, Australia based researcher with expertise in strategic culture, terrorism and political economy. I recently completed a political science PhD at Monash University on strategic subcultures in terrorist organisations. I blog on my post PhD research program at Vega Theory. In 1998-2008, I edited and wrote for the subculture search engine Disinformation.

This newsletter will feature advice, commentary, drafts, and working notes on how to build a research program and insights from my research agenda. I will be posting several times a week to share knowledge that I hope you find useful.
