I teach a variety of courses in Comparative Politics, Social Movements and Contentious Politics, and Qualitative Methods.
I believe in the transformative power of a liberal arts education. My teaching focuses on scaffolding knowledge and skills so that students leave college more curious about the world, and with ability to be tackle complex problems, be thoughtful citizens, engage in their community, and excel in the careers they choose.
By teaching broadly within the field of political science, I have developed the ability communicate across a diverse student body, to create connections across course material, and to integrate key skills into all of my classes. Diversity and inclusion are a through line across my scholarship, teaching, and service.
