Senior Lecturer

Geopolitics, Strategy, Mexico, Innovation, North America

 

I work as research professor at the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) and at the National Security Affairs (NSA) Department of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.

My research takes place at the intersection of the accelerating pace of innovation and security, safety and defense policies. In particular, I study how the government can adapt in a more effective way to counter the deviant innovation capacities of criminal organizations, and I have managed projects to create Information Technology tools to better prepare decision makers when confronted by adversarial innovation.

With more than 8 years of experience working on the geostrategic implications of deviant innovation for the American territories, I am also a subject matter expert on the geopolitics of North America and border management.

I am the leading professor at CHDS for strategy and planning and for the special topics seminar focused on cyberpolicy. I also teach the classes on  Border Security and Mexico Politics, Policies and Government at the National Security Affairs Department.

I impart seminars and lectures (graduate level and training)  to the senior leadership of the homeland security community of the United States at the federal, state and local level, including the armed forces, police, fire departments, public health, emergency management, immigration and customs, port authorities, Governor's Office Staffs and cabinets, radiological experts, crisis managers as well as the business continuity and planning executives of big corporations.
