Jarret Brachman is an American terrorism expert,[1] the author of Global Jihadism: Theory and Practice[2][3] and a consultant to several government agencies about terrorism.[4][5]

Education and career[edit]

He is a graduate of Augustana College (BA, 2000) and University of Delaware (MA, 2002; PhD, 2006).[6]

He is a former graduate fellow at the Central Intelligence Agency (2003), and the former director of research at West Point's Combating Terrorism Center (2004–08).[7][8]

He coined the phrase "jihobbyist" in his 2008 book Global Jihadism: Theory and Practice. It is used to denote a person who is not an active member of a violent jihadi organization such as Al-Qaeda or the Somali Al Shabaab, but who has a fascination with and enthusiasm for jihad and Islamic extremism.[9][10]

Brachman, now managing director of Cronus Global LLC and a civilian scholar on the faculty of North Dakota State University, regularly briefs government officials on terrorism issues.[11][12]

In 2013, Brachman joined Wells Fargo's Emergency Incident Management Team.
