    Tom O'Donnell

    Part-Time Faculty, International Affairs

    O'Donnell’s present work examines the political economy of a globalized energy sector, especially of petroleum, as a basis for understanding both U.S. geo-strategy and the trajectories of major oil-producing states. His research and teaching have focused on the Middle East and North African (MENA) states and Latin America.  Dr. O’Donnell was a 2008 U.S. Fulbright Scholar to Venezuela, and in 2009 he continues his affiliation with the Centro de Estudios del Desarrollo at the Universidad Central de Venezuela (CENDES-UCV) in Caracas, studying the political economy of oil in the internal and external policies of the Bolivarian state. Dr. O’Donnell has often taught at The New School for Social Research in New York City, where he was also Visiting Fellow at the Department of Graduate Economics in 2008-09.
