Adam P. MacDonald, a former naval officer in the Canadian Armed Forces, is a PhD candidate in the Political Science Department and a doctoral fellow at the Centre for the Study of Security and Development at Dalhousie University. His research seeks to understand American decision-making towards China and Russia in the early period of the post-Cold War era to explain the differences in approaches taken towards each, how these became entrenched policy and to what degree this contributed (or not) to the souring of these relationships. He is a Killam Scholar and holds a Department of Defence MINDS Doctoral Scholarship. In September 2020, he began a two-year fellowship at the Canadian International Council.
