Teaching Interests

I am interested in teaching courses on a range of topics in international relations, comparative politics, and research methods. These include, but are not limited to, international relations theory, international security, conflict resolution, the Cold War, diplomacy/diplomatic history, foreign policy decision-making, public policy, and qualitative methods. I would also enjoy teaching survey and/or special studies courses on the Middle East. All these courses can be taught at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
