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, foreign policy decision-making, 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.
