I have taught graduate and undergraduate students in international relations and comparative politics. Currently, I am teaching introductory courses to political science, comparative politics, international development, and international organizations. Prior to this, I served as a Cordier Fellow and an instructor for the core Master of International Affairs (MIA) course, Conceptual Foundations of International Politics that all incoming MIA students are required to take when they embark on their graduate studies at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). As a SIPA alum, it was a privilege to impart some of my experiences with students and learn from theirs, as we collectively worked through IR theories to explain international affairs. Students' positive responses to my pedagogical approach led to my being awarded Columbia's 2015 Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching.
