Timothy Hiu‑Tung Choi
Timothy Choi is a doctoral candidate at the University of Calgary's Centre for Military, Security and Strategic Studies, where he also received his Master of Strategic Studies in 2013. Prior to that he graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and History. He is interested in a wide range of maritime and naval issues, both historical and contemporary, with writings appearing in the Canadian Naval Review, the Journal for Military and Strategic Studies, the CDA Institute's On Track and Forum, as well as with the Centre for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC). His Master's thesis looked at the challenges facing the United States Navy in the realm of mine warfare and the strategic consequences of this capability gap, using the Ottoman Empire's defence of the Dardanelles in the First World War as a comparative example. For his doctoral dissertation, he is examining the nature and character of seapower as part of the modern maritime strategies of countries with small navies during peacetime; his case studies involve the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland.
