Lead Instructor, Duke University

  • Thesis Writing in Political Science

Teaching Assistant, Duke University

  • Democracy: Ancient and Modern

  • Challenges of Living an Ethical Life

  • Introduction to Political Science

My goal in teaching is for students to connect the material from my classes to their other coursework, promoting an integrated understanding of political science as a discipline, and to their lives outside of the university. While few students will become political scientists, they all live in a country with a participatory government that expects and benefits from the engagement of an informed and dedicated public.

Teaching interests: Comparative politics of the Middle East, theories of democracy, public opinion and political behavior, religion and politics, religion and gender, ethics
