Beyond research, I am passionate about teaching. I emphasize the importance of careful research design, of clear writing, and of identifying assumptions and limitations. I try to give students as much feedback on their assignments as early in the semester as possible.

At the undergraduate level, my expertise covers introductory classes in American and Comparative Politics, Statistics, and Game Theory. At the graduate level, my teaching interests focus on Comparative Political Behavior, Political Economy, as well as Quantitative Methods with an emphasis on Causal Inference.
