I take great pride in teaching. I believe helping students apply and question our discipline's theories is core to being a political scientist.
As a graduate student at Princeton, I have served as a teaching instructor for undergraduate courses in Comparative Politics (Politics in Africa), International Relations (Human Rights) and Middle Eastern Studies (History of the Middle East). I also co-taught an introduction to writing course and tutored incarcerated students with Princeton’s Prison Teaching Initiative (PTI).
