Peter Schram

Assistant Professor

Peter Schram is an Assistant Professor of Political Science. His research uses empirical and microeconomic methods to study counterinsurgency, economic development, and grey zone conflict. His research is structured around three central questions: Why do individuals support militant groups? How do insurgent groups organize and operate? And how do features of the global community and technology influence the characteristics of conflict? Before starting at Vanderbilt, Peter was working as a research specialist for UCSD’s Cross Domain Deterrence project.
