Eleonora Mattiacci, Karl Loewenstein Post-Doctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science, holds an M.A. from the University of Bologna and a Ph.D.  from The Ohio State University. Both her research and teaching tackle the conditions under which relations between countries swing back and forth inconsistently between episodes of intense cooperation (i.e., trade agreements, alliance formation, etc.) and instances of bitter conflict (i.e., wars, military attacks, etc.). She focuses in particular on the role played by nuclear weapons and climate change in shaping such volatile foreign policy behavior. For more information, see Eleonora Mattiacci's Personal Website
