I am an assistant professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Columbus State University. I teach quantitative research methods, American government, comparative politics, African politics, international relations, and public administration. I am on the steering committee for the University's Quality Enhancement Plan, in which we assist faculty in teaching real-world problem solving in their courses.

I have two primary areas of research interest: pedagogy and African politics. I aim to develop teaching methodologies that are both effective and efficient in helping students develop new skills, particularly with regards to data analysis (please see my materials for teaching R to beginners). Within the field of African politics, I focus on the politics of delivering healthcare; particularly on the failures of delivering essential medicines that are both affordable and easy to distribute.
