As an educator I am committed to an inclusive and participatory classroom in which I encourage students to relate concepts to real-world political, social and econmic issues, challenge preconceived notions, and question injustice in order to become engaged global citizens. My teaching interests include comparative politics, international relations, international institutions, comparative and international political economy, research methods, global migration, and refugees.
