Teaching is at the heart of the university’s mission and one of the principal reasons I chose to become an academic historian. As a teacher and as a mentor, I help students appreciate the breadth of different historical experiences and understand how processes of political, socio-economic, and cultural change have shaped our global society. I seek to promote intellectual curiosity and proficiency in critical analysis, research, and communication. Finally, I believe that the way to do so is by creating an inclusive, collaborative, and student-centered educational experience.
Before coming to the University of Colorado Denver, I previously taught at the University of Chicago, the Institut des Etudes Politiques-Paris (better known as Sciences Po), and the European University Institute in Florence. Over the years, I have been privileged to work with a variety of students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and have learned tremendously from our collective conversations.
Whether you are a current student, a major in the History or International Studies programs, or simply curious about the study of history or international studies, I encourage you to be in contact or to attend office hours.
I teach primarily in the fields of transnational European history and of international studies. The following are some of the recent classes I have taught:
