Garrett Hinck is Coordinator of the Summer Workshop on the Analysis of Military Operations and Strategy (SWAMOS). He is a Ph.D. student at Columbia University in the Department of Political Science focusing on international relations and security. In particular, his research examines how efforts to constrain and regulate emerging and developed military technologies through arms control and non-proliferation succeed and fail. Additionally, he is also interested in nuclear deterrence and U.S. foreign policy. Mr. Hinck’s work is multi-method, encompassing qualitative historical and archival research along with quantitative approaches such as survey experiments.

Prior to enrolling at Columbia, Mr. Hinck worked at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where he was a James C. Gaither Junior Fellow in the Cyber Policy Initiative and Nuclear Policy Program. His written work has been published in the Washington Post, “War on the Rocks,” “Lawfare,” the Journal of National Security Law and Policy, and the UN Institute for Disarmament Research. He graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
