Mathias Ormestad Frendem is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Belfer Center's International Security Program and received his D.Phil. in International Relations from the University of Oxford, Nuffield College. His doctoral dissertation develops georealism, a new realist theory of how great powers choices on balancing and bandwagoning, alliances, and war. Various cases from the European great power system between 1683 and 1914 are used to test this theory. Mathias earned an M.Phil. in International Relations from the University of Oxford in 2013 and a B.A. in International Studies from the University of Oslo in 2009.
