Alexander Cooley is Director of Columbia University's Harriman Institute for the study of Russia, Eurasia and Eastern Europe and the Claire Tow Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, Columbia University.

Professor Cooley's research examines how external actors– including international organizations, multinational companies, NGOs, and foreign military bases – have influenced the development and sovereignty of the former Soviet states, with a focus on Central Asia and the Caucasus.

His books include Base Politics: Democratic Change and the US Military Overseas and Great Games, Local Rules: The New Great Power Contest for Central Asia (Oxford 2012). He also is the co-author (with John Heathershaw) of Dictators without Borders: Power and Money in Central Asia (Yale 2017).

In addition to his academic research, Professor Cooley serves on several international advisory and policy committees and has testified for the United States Congress, the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission and briefed US and international officials on Eurasian politics. Cooley earned both his M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University.
