During the 2018–2019 academic year, he was a Fulbright Scholar in Tunisia, teaching at the Université de Tunis in the International Political Economy minor program at Tunis Business School. His research examines the intersection of political-economy and security studies in Northern Africa with an emphasis on foreign interventions — political, economic, and military — in the Maghreb and Sahara-Sahel regions. He has conducted fieldwork in Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Western Sahara. His PhD research on the international politics of Algeria's civil conflict in the 1990s was supported by a fellowship with Le Centre d'Etudes Maghrébines en Algérie during the 2007–2008 academic year. In addition to several peer reviewed articles and chapters, his monographs include Imaginative Geographies of Algerian Violence (Stanford University Press 2015) and Libya (Polity Press 2018). He is also the coauthor of Western Sahara: War, Nationalism, and Conflict Irresolution (Syracuse University Press 2010) with Stephen Zunes and coeditor of The Postconflict Environment (University of Michigan Press 2014) with Daniel Monk. He also regularly contributes to Middle East Report and Africa is a Country. His current research examines the relationship between the elaboration of the modern Middle East, deferred crises of capitalism, and the phenomenon of terrorism.
