About Andrew Miller

I am an assistant professor of political science at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where I teach courses on comparative politics. My research focuses on organized crime and policing with a geographic concentration on Africa. My work investigates, among other dynamics, how criminal groups gain influence in communities and prevent cooperation between citizens and police. Outside of academia, I have worked on USAID projects in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as served as an assistant director for the Council on Foreign Relations’ Center for Preventive Action. I have a PhD in political science and security studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a masters degree in foreign service from Georgetown University.
