About me:

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science and International Relations at Drew University, where I am also the Director of the Semester on the United Nations.

I earned my Ph.D. at the London School of Economics. At American University, I completed my M.A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies and B.A. in International Studies. Prior to joining Drew University in August 2005, I taught at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Hamilton College.
