Position: Assistant Professor
- International Relations and US Foreign Policy
Department: Political Science
I teach classes on international security, US foreign policy, and International Relations theory, and I am available to advise students on these topics and more. I currently have two main research projects underway: one focusing on great power relations during periods of major international change (with a specific emphasis on US-China relations) and another focusing on the environmental protection of US military bases, both overseas and in the 50 states. I also have a keen interest in British and European politics.
During spring 2017, I wrote a weekly blog to offer study tips to undergraduate students. The blog contains advice on things such as note-taking, participating in class, and writing essays.

I'm a strong advocate for tolerance on college campuses - especially when it comes to political diversity - and have written a couple of articles on this topic for the Rocky Mountain Collegian, here and here.
