Thomas Barnett

Managing Partner
Barnett Consulting LLC
CURRENTLY:
EDUCATION:
  • B.A. in International Relations and Russian Literature, University of Wisconsin, 1984
  • A.M. in Soviet Union Program, Harvard University, 1986
  • Ph.D. in Political Science, Harvard University, 1990
BOOKS:
Thomas P.M. Barnett is a strategic planner who has worked in national security affairs since the end of the Cold War. He has also operated his own consulting practice (Barnett Consulting LLC) since 1998.
Dr. Barnett currently serves as Managing Director at Barnett Consulting LLC. He also serves as the first appointed Senior Research Fellow of the Beijing-based Knowfar Institute for Defense and Security Studies (KIDSS) - China's first government-approved non-governmental organization in that domain. Finally, Dr. Barnett serves as a security advisory board member at iJet International.
A New York Times-bestselling author and a nationally-known public speaker who's been profiled on the front-page of the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Barnett is in high demand within government circles as a forecaster of global conflict and an expert of globalization, as well as within corporate circles as a management consultant and conference presenter. A prime example is his 2005 TED Talk, which has received over a million online views. An award-winning professor, Dr. Barnett has written for Esquire, Foreign Policy, Wired, National Review, and the Washington Post, and has been interviewed by Rolling Stone, The Economist, Time, BBC World Service, CNN, Fox News and numerous foreign media. Tom Barnett has been described by U.S. News & World Report's Michael Barone as "one of the most important strategic thinkers of our time."
Dr. Barnett is best known as the author of Great Powers: America and the World After Bush (2009), Blueprint for Action: A Future Worth Creating (2005) and The Pentagon's New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century (2004). Described by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius as "a combination of Tom Friedman on globalization and Karl von Clausewitz on war," the wide-ranging volumes have generated an enormous amount of reaction from around the world, leading to foreign editions in Japan, Turkey and China, as well as profiles in major newspapers around the world.
From 2010 to 2015, Dr. Barnett served as Chief Analyst for the world's first crowdsourced consultancy, Wikistrat Inc.
From 2005 to 2012, Tom served as a contributing editor to Esquire magazine, writing approximately two dozen articles for the monthly. He also wrote for two of its online blogs from 2009 through 2011.Speaking recently in South Africa at a mining conference
From 2011-2013, Tom wrote for Time's Battleland blog, and from 2009 to 2012, Tom wrote "The New Rules" column at World Politics Review. Prior to that (2005-2009), he wrote a syndicated print column for Scripps Howards News Service, and served as a visiting scholar at the University of Tennessee’s Howard Baker Center for Public Policy and a visiting strategist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
From 2005 to 2011, Dr. Barnett served as Senior Managing Director of the information technology firm Enterra Solutions LLC.
From 1998 through 2004, Prof. Barnett was a Senior Strategic Researcher and Professor in the Warfare Analysis & Research Department, Center for Naval Warfare Studies, U.S. Naval War College, Newport RI, where he taught and served--in a senior advisory role--with military and civilian leaders in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, Central Command, Special Operations Command, and Joint Forces Command. From November 2001 to June of 2003, Dr. Barnett was on temporary assignment as the Assistant for Strategic Futures, Office of Force Transformation (OFT), Office of the Secretary of Defense, where he worked with (then) OFT Director Vice Admiral Arthur K. Cebrowski (USN, ret.) on a cluster of strategic concepts that link change in the international security environment to the imperative of transforming U.S. military capabilities to meet future threats.
Dr. Barnett published a number of articles explaining these strategic concepts, which he presented comprehensively in "what may be history's most famous Pentagon briefing," declared syndicated columnist Jack Kelly. Dr. Barnett delivered this brief well over a thousand times to a cumulative wordwide audience of more than several hundred thousand government officials, military officers, industry and think tank representatives and opinion leaders. He currently gives an updated version of the brief in talks.
At the Naval War College, Dr. Barnett also served as Director of the NewRuleSets.Project, an ambitious effort to draw new "maps" of power and influence in the world economy. The project was conducted in partnership with the Wall Street broker-dealer firm Cantor Fitzgerald, which hosted three full-day "decision event" workshops atop World Trade Center 1 (at the Windows on the World restaurant). Prior to this study, Dr. Barnett directed the Year 2000 International Security Dimension Project.
Before joining the College in August 1998, Dr. Barnett served as a Project Director in both the Center for Naval Analyses and the Institute for Public Research, the two major divisions of The CNA Corporation (CNAC), a private research firm located in Alexandria, VA. His two major accomplishments during his CNAC career were:
  • Serving as a member of the Naval Force Capabilities Planning Effort that developed the new strategic concepts eventually published in the Navy’s White Paper . . . From The Sea, the first draft of which he co-authored along with a handful of senior naval officers
  • Pioneering and managing CNAC’s contractual relationship with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
While at CNAC, he published several dozen reports, essays, and annotated briefings on a wide variety of subjects.
In the mid-1990s, Prof. Barnett penned, along with his spouse Vonne, a book-length manuscript entitled, The Emily Updates: One Year in the Life of the Girl Who Lived. The work has been published as an e-book serial (5 volumes) in the fall of 2011.The Non-Integrated Gap highlighted
Professor Barnett has a BA (Honors) from the University of Wisconsin with a double-major in Russian Language and Literature and International Relations (emphasis—U.S. Foreign Policy). At Wisconsin, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa his junior year. Following Wisconsin, Dr. Barnett earned an AM in Regional Studies: Russia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia and a PhD in Political Science (major-International Relations; minor-Comparative Politics) from Harvard University. His dissertation was entitled "Warsaw Pact-Third World Relations, 1968-1987: Explaining the Special Roles of Romania and East Germany" and was subsequently published by Praeger.
Thomas Barnett is also a Green Bay Packer season ticket-holder, and as one of the stockholders of the franchise, he feels it is essential to check up on his investment on a regular basis. His seats are located in the historic "South End Zone" of Lambeau Field. Tom's maternal grandfather (Jerry Clifford) was elected to the Packer Hall of Fame in 1991 as a "contributor."

Jerry Dahlberg

University of North Carolina, Charlotte
Jerry Dahlberg is a retired veteran who served 21 years in the United States Army. Originally from Iowa, Jerry came to UNC Charlotte to pursue his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He is now completing his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and wants to go on to work in a National Research Lab upon completion of his program.
Jerry was the project team student lead for the UNC Charlotte Rocket Team, which won the Best Vehicle Design award at the NASA Launch Competition in 2014 and was one of three finalists out of 3,250 student projects for the National Instruments Student Design Competition. Jerry also mentored the 2015 team and is currently the Department of Engineering’s Veteran STEM Outreach Coordinator. Also in 2014, Jerry won the Benjamin O. Hood Service Award for giving back to the community through service. He, along with other faculty, students and alum of the Motorsports Engineering program spoke on the Discovery Channel about water tunnel testing. Using NASCAR’s Car of Tomorrow and the 5th largest water channel in the United States (housed in the Motorsports Research Building here at UNC Charlotte), Jerry and his colleagues were able demonstrate the safety impact of NASCAR’s change from wing back to spoiler.

When asked what the most important thing new veteran students should know when coming to UNC Charlotte, Jerry said “Don’t be bashful with faculty. Get to know your professors early in the semester. This will be key to your success.
