Teaching

I enjoy teaching and mentoring and have taught a large undergraduate International Relations lecture course, been a TA for a graduate-level seminar, and given guest lectures to graduate students at European and North American universities. I would enjoy teaching courses in transnational security, global governance, organizational behavior, African state formation, civil wars and political violence, qualitative and multi-method research, field research, international aid and development, humanitarianism, peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction, and the law and politics of international conflict management, among other topics, and would infuse each of my courses with deep empirics and wide-ranging theory.

When students finish my classes, I aim for them to have four things. First, they will be fascinated by the study of International Relations and convinced that it deals with problems that matter. Second, they will know that these complex problems are not easily resolved, but that, through careful research and analysis, we can better understand them and evaluate potential solutions. Third, they will be better writers and researchers, able to select more compelling research questions, develop innovative research designs, and make convincing arguments. Fourth, they will have an insider’s perspective on international politics, permitting them to understand the daily realities of policymakers and practitioners. By fulfilling these four aims, I help to socialize students into the world of international relations, giving them the knowledge, skills, and connections that they will need when applying for jobs and doing research in this area.
