Vanes Ibric is completing his Ph.D. at the George Washington University, specializing in international security. His dissertation examines why countries that are formally allied sometimes engage in wars and militarized interstate disputes. In addition, he is working on a DoD Minerva–funded project on naval warfare. In collaboration with Professor Stephen Biddle of Columbia University, he is completing a dataset of all great-power surface naval battles fought between the dawn of the Age of Sail in 1652 and the end of the last major great power war at sea in 1945.Last Updated: Nov 2, 2019, 10:10pm
