Teaching and Advising

  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in international relations and security studies. In my teaching, I strive to help students at all levels apply political science theories and methods to study policy-relevant questions.

I received a 2021 Levitan Teaching Award from MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS), the 2023 Frank E. Perkins Award for Excellence in Graduate Advising from MIT’s Graduate Student Council, and serve as a Faculty Fellow with the MIT SHASS Burchard Scholars Program.

I offer the following courses:

  • 17.449 – Emerging Technology and International Security (Undergraduate)
  • 17.46 – National Security Policy (Undergraduate)
  • 17.432 – Causes of War: Theory and Method (Graduate)
  • 17.S951 – International Politics of Emerging Technology (Graduate)

Outside of MIT, I serve as a fellow with Bridging the Gap Project, helping to facilitate workshops that promote the practice and sharing of policy-relevant research.
