Jennifer Spindel

Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of New Hampshire

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of New Hampshire.

I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Minnesota, where I held a Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship. I was previously a fellow at the Institute for Security and Conflict Studies in the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University, and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College.

My research interests include international security, foreign policy, and coercion. My current book project examines the foreign policy consequences of conventional arms transfers, and argues that arms transfers are a form of political signaling. The project draws on extensive archival research and fieldwork at international weapons shows.
