About the Speaker
Chris Miller is an expert on international politics, economics, and technology. He is the author, of Chip War: The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology, a book that explains how computer chips have made the modern world—and how the U.S. and China are struggling for control over this fundamental technology. A handful of companies control the manufacturing of all the world's semiconductors, giving them a chokehold over the computing power on which everything from the biggest data centers to the tiniest Internet-of-Things devices depend. The future of computing, the book argues, will be determined by who controls the ability to produce the world's most advanced chips. Chip War won Financial Times' Best Business Book of the Year award and was described by The New York Times as a "a nonfiction thriller."

Miller serves as associate professor of international history at The Fletcher School at Tufts University and co-director of the school's Russia and Eurasia Program. He also serves as visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Eurasia Director of the Foreign Policy Research Institute, a leading think tank, where he researches and writes on trends in international politics. He is also a Director at Greenmantle, a New York and London-based macroeconomic and geopolitical consulting firm that advises some of the world's largest hedge funds, venture capital firms, asset managers, and corporations.

Professor Miller's previous books explored major trends in politics and economics that shaped the contemporary world. His book Putinomics: Power and Money in Resurgent Russia explores the origins of Vladimir Putin's rule over Russia and the economic impact Putin has had. Miller's book We Shall Be Masters examines major shifts in geopolitics in Europe and Asia over the past three centuries, exploring the rise and fall of prior empires and how this legacy shapes Russia and China today. Miller's first book, The Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy examined the collapse of the Soviet Union and global demise of socialism

Professor Miller frequently writes for newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, and many others. He has published academic articles in leading journals of international politics and economics. He has previously served as Associate Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale, a lecturer at the New Economic School in Moscow, a visiting researcher at the Carnegie Moscow Center, a research associate at the Brookings Institution, and as a fellow at the German Marshall Fund's Transatlantic Academy. He received his Ph.D. and M.A. from Yale University and his B.A. in history from Harvard University.
