Professor Newman received his BA in International Relations from Stanford University and his PhD in political science from the University of California, Berkeley.
His research focuses on international political economy, with a special interest in global regulatory issues. He has completed a project on European global leadership in the area of data privacy and is currently working on international economic governance.
