Teaching Statement

I focus on providing students tools they can use to better understand their role as citizens and to be effective in their profession. I encourage lively discussion to critically assesses research in political science and explore how the findings can be applied to contemporary social problems. In my teaching, I emphasize critical engagement, methodological rigor, and building relationships with students.
