Daniel Chardell is a Henry Chauncey ’57 Postdoctoral Fellow in the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale University. He specializes in the history of U.S. foreign relations, the Middle East, and the Cold War. Drawing on research in more than a dozen archival collections and a range of Arabic-language materials, his dissertation uses the Gulf War of 1991 as a lens through which to explore contending American and Arab visions of sovereignty and order at the dawn of the post-Cold War era.

Daniel received his PhD in history from Harvard University in May 2023. Prior to joining Yale, he was an America in the World Consortium Predoctoral Fellow in the Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins SAIS.
