I study:The Middle East and North Africa”

This fall I’m teaching: “Comparative Politics, and Democratization and Democratic Breakdown, 1828-1995”

What students can expect from me: “I hope my students will think of me more as a guide than a lecturer, someone who has wrestled with—and in some ways continues to wrestle with—many of the ideas that drew them to study political science in the first place. While the journey is theirs, I hope to provide the compass.”

I’m excited to be here because: “I am excited to introduce my students to the methods and ideas that I have spent many years thinking about. I aim to create a lively, respectful, and stimulating environment that will encourage high levels of critical thought and writing skills for my students. Many of my happiest experiences as a teacher came during group discussions when complicated ideas percolated into real understanding.”
