Cutler is Senior Research Fellow and Director, Energy Security Program, NATO Association of Canada; and Practitioner Member, Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation, University of Waterloo. He began his career in academia, earning two Sc.B. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology followed by the Ph.D. from The University of Michigan. After over 15 years in major universities in the United States, Canada, France, Switzerland and Russiaincluding competitive research fellowships from University of Geneva, Moscow State University and Columbia Universityhe expanded into policy analysis and consulting while maintaining his academic profile.

He is thus an accomplished editor and also journalist, and Past Chairman, Board of Directors, Montreal Press Club. He was for many years Senior Researcher, Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies, Carleton University. 

In the early 1990s, building upon his existing expertise in Cold-War European security, he turned his attention to the geo-economics of post-Soviet Eurasia, focusing on energy and natural resources. In the late 1990s he developed a deep appreciation for the science of complex systems ("complexity science"), which informs much of his work today. A specialist in the substantive issue-area of energy security and geo-economics, his skill-sets also include the planning and execution of strategic communications, creation of negotiation strategies and complex organizational design including decision-making analysis. He has over 20 years’ experience consulting to governments, international institutions, civil-society organizations, think tanks and the private sector, including the framing of issues, leadership of teams, and production of bulletins and briefings. An expert recognized by the U.S. Immigration Court, he has written affadavits on human rights in Central Asia for appellants seeking asylum for reasons of political, religious, national-origin and gender discrimination.
