Teaching

Next to my research, I also strive for excellence in teaching.  At the University of Georgia, I teach Introduction to Comparative Politics and African Politics, and look forward to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on political violence, the political economy of development, and qualitative methods.  I am also an instructor with Democratic Erosion, a cross-university collaborative course.

While at Skidmore College, I taught Introduction to Comparative Politics and International Relations, Africa’s Rise in a Changing World, States, Markets and Politics in Developing Countries, International Interventions and Post-Conflict Politics, and Democratic Erosion.

To strengthen my teaching, I completed two year-long seminars on pedagogy and course development with Brown University’s Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning.
