My approach to teaching reflects my broader theoretical interests in complexity, globalization, and methodology. At Old Dominion University I enjoy teaching a variety of courses in international political economy and research methods to both graduate and undergraduate student as well as the introduction to international politics course for undergraduates. These courses have ranged widely in content and format, from small seminars on advanced statistical techniques to lecture-format classes with 35 or more undergraduates. I particularly enjoy teaching methodology courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Given this variety of subjects and formats, my course designs follow no one template. Generally, however, I seek to emphasize writing in both undergraduate and graduate seminars on globalization and IPE, while undergraduate and graduate methods courses combine intensive statistical exercises and exams with practical hands-on learning of modeling software (NetLogo, SPSS, gnuplot, and others).
