EducationI am a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland-College Park working on my PhD in Political Science with an emphasis on international relations and quantitative methodology. My dissertation explores how autocratic states respond to the imposition of economic sanctions domestically, and how those domestic behaviors impact sanction outcomes.
ExperienceWhile pursuing my PhD at the University of Maryland, I taught courses on International Relations, International Conflict and Development, Political Methodology and Statistics, and International Negotiations. I have also spent a year working as an economist and analyst at the United States International Trade Commission.
In undergrad I worked as a writing tutor for a couple of years. I have had a lot of experience editing the papers of my students, my peers and myself and have a good intuition for what works and what doesn't when it comes to writing. I know how to help students develop their own voice while learning the basic fundamentals of strong writing skills. Personally, I believe the most important step to writing is developing a strong structure to your piece and outline, outline, outline! My philosophy towards education and teaching is that students can learn as much as they put into a subject. I am simply a facilitator. I love to see students learn and grow and I have been known to sit with students for hours reviewing essays and working through problems with them, but I can't learn for you--you must do the work. However, as long as you are willing to put in the effort, I will support you in every way possible.
HobbiesOutside of work and school, I enjoy pottery, yoga, and gardening--or at least I'm learning how to garden. I'm not very good at it.
