My current teaching interests center on the rather expansive topics of international relations (IR) and IR theory, international security and governance, and qualitative research methods.

Supervision: I am interested in supervising research projects related to international organizations, especially in the global south, foreign policy-making, and cooperation and conflict among states more generally. I am particularly interested in projects that engage with social IR theory and/or qualitative research methods. Please email me or visit my office hours if you would like to chat!
