My goal is to foster an inclusive environment where all students develop their abilities to think critically about political science research, develop evidence-based arguments, and communicate those arguments persuasively. It is important to me that with respect to each "big question", I present students not only with relevant foundational works by Western scholars, but also with viewpoints from groups that are traditionally under-represented on political science syllabi. In the classroom, my pedagogical approach is informed by research on effective teaching and learning skills. This includes an emphasis on active learning activities.
