Gregory is a Ph.D. Candidate with interests in international relations theory, US foreign policy, and political methodology. His dissertation studies how the causal effect of foreign policy tools, particularly those that are designed to coerce or compel opponents, change over time. The findings indicate that U.S. policymakers commonly misuse a wide array of foreign policy tools and in the most extreme cases, implement policies that are counterproductive to U.S. interests.

Gregory received a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Connecticut (2013) and an M.A. in Political Science from the Ohio State University (2016). His research is forthcoming in International Organization.
