Jarrod Hayes is an Associate Professor of international relations at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. From 2010-2017, he was assistant and associate professor (with tenure) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2003, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in astrophysics and political science and his Ph.D. in Politics and International Relations at the University of Southern California in 2009. His areas of scholarly and teaching interest focus on the role of social orders in shaping international security and environmental practice; this has allowed him to investigate a wide range of issues, from U.S. relations with India and China to the role of security discourses in climate change policy to the relationship between theory and practice. His scholarship appears in the European Journal of International Relations, Foreign Policy Analysis, Geografiska Annaler B: Human Geography, German Studies Review, Global Environmental Politics, International Organization, International Studies Quarterly, and Security Studies. Cambridge University Press published his first book—Constructing National Security: US Relations with India and China—in 2013. He is married to Janelle Knox-Hayes, who is on the faculty of MIT in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning.
