My teaching interests within American politics include elections, Congress, political polarization, the presidency, and public opinion. I also enjoy teaching classes focused on on public policy, undergraduate research methods, and academic writing.

During the 2022-23 school year, I was a visiting assistant professor at Kenyon College. Previously, I taught at Duke University, offering courses in in the Departments of Statistical Science and Political Science and in the Thompson Writing Program. I have also taught courses in the UNC Political Science Department and the MPA@UNC program.

My classes are usually a mix of short lectures intertwined with other modes of learning, such as class-wide discussions, simulations, and activities that emphasize specific skills. I design my lectures to not be a one-sided conversation, but rather promote critical thought and provoke responses from students. I also incorporate active learning into my classes with simulations and discussions.

As I finalize my syllabi for this Fall, I will upload syllabi here as a resource for Fordham students.

As a guide of how I teach, here are sample syllabi from two of the courses I taught at Duke:
