Mr. Strandow's research interests include how foreign aid going to areas of varying territorial dominance can influence warring partiesā€™ ability and will to kill opponents. Theoretically these interests are pursued from a rational choice as well as a systemic approach. Empirically Strandow and colleagues are mapping territorial dominance in Africa South of the Sahara. Mr. Strandow was a pioneer of systematically geocoding foreign aid projects. His work has supported geo-coding efforts at the World Bank, USAID, African Development Bank, International Aid Transparency Initiative, the AidData Center for Development Policy, and others.
