Teaching Experience


I have extensive teaching experience at the graduate and undergraduate levels, both in substantive topics and in research methods for the social sciences. At the University of Michigan, I have designed and taught summer courses in international relations, comparative politics, quantitative methods, and computational programming, and served as a Math Camp instructor for the incoming cohort of Ph.D. students. Additionally, I have served as a Graduate Student Instructor for five full-term classes in the Department of Political Science.

I have mentored, provided research assistance, and worked with undergraduate and Master's degree students through various projects at the University of Michigan. 

Teaching Interests

I am interested in designing and teaching courses related to international relations, comparative politics, political violence, the political economy of development, Eurasian politics, quantitative and computational methods, and causal inference. Please email me for syllabi, teaching notes, and course evaluations.
