Teaching

I am committed to excellence in teaching and have gained experience as both a lead instructor and teaching assistant at Brown University.

For Brown’s pre-college summer program, I designed and taught “The New World (Dis)Order: Terrorists, Insurgents, and Revolutionary Movements in the 21st Century.”  This course explores political order and violence through historical and contemporary case studies with foundational as well as ground-breaking research.  I have also served as a teaching assistant for courses in international relations, comparative politics, and public policy and political theory.  I endeavor to strengthen my teaching and have participated in two year-long seminars on pedagogy and course development with Brown University’s Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning.

Here you can find sample syllabi for courses I am prepared to teach, including Introduction to Comparative PoliticsAfrican Politics, and Ethnic Politics.
