Jacob L. Shapiro

Director of Analysis
Geopolitical Futures

Jacob L. Shapiro is the Director of Analysis at Geopolitical Futures (GPF). Prior to working at GPF, Shapiro worked at Stratfor for five years, where he directed the company’s operations center for over three years before deciding his heart really lay in analysis. For another two years after that, Shapiro was Middle East/North Africa analyst at Stratfor before deciding to leave to start GPF in 2015. Shapiro manages GPF’s analyst team and also manages its overall analytical processes.

Shapiro often appears as a speaker at international conferences and regularly briefs corporate clients on geopolitical risk. His work has been published in numerous outlets besides GPF, including Horizons Journal of International Relations, the Valdai Discussion Club, and Limes Italian Geopolitics Review. Shapiro is often featured as an expert on international affairs in major media outlets and is currently working on his first book, title TBA.

Shapiro holds a master’s degree from the University of Oxford in Jewish Studies and a BA from Cornell University in Near Eastern Studies. When not researching, writing, or briefing on geopolitics, Shapiro can usually be found trying not to make a fool of himself on the basketball court. Based in Austin, Shapiro splits his time between living in Texas and traveling the world.
