My primary teaching interests fall along the following subfields of Political Science:
Comparative Politics: Repression and Control under Dictatorships; Institutions; Authoritarian Regimes; Elections in Emerging Democracies; and Election Violence.
International Relations: Human Right, Peacemaking; Conflict; Political Economy of Development; International Political Economy; International Ethics; and Genocide Prevention and Intervention.
Methods: Research Design and Conceptualization; OLS; MLE; and Longitudinal Data Analysis.
I have designed and taught nine sections of Comparative Politics and one section of International Relations at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
After my first year as a lecturer, I received the New Faculty Commendation for Teaching Commitment from the Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center at the University of Arkansas
In addition to teaching at the University of Arkansas, I have taught POL 3143: American Presidency at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas and two sections of Global Diplomacy for the Summer College and Academy at Duke University.
This semester, Fall 2016, I am a teaching assistant for Eric Reinhardt’s POLS 110: Introduction to International Politics. In Spring 2017, I will co-teach Repression and Control under Dictatorships with Jennifer Gandhi.
