Teaching

 

Lecturer, Department of Political Science, Yale University, 2019-

Program Fellow and Academic Advisor, Multidisciplinary Academic Program in Human Rights Studies, Yale College, 2014-

 

Interests

My teaching interests range from critical theory, modern political thought, 20th century European political thought, and democratic theory to international human rights, public international law, European Union law, and the politics of borders, citizenship, and asylum.

I am particularly interested in understanding theoretical arguments as they interact with historical developments in political institutions and legal doctrines, encouraging in students a sensitivity for how normative principles inform and are informed by the rationalities and practical negotiations of public law and, further, how more implicit political commitments are expressed across political practices, law, and cultural life.
