Biography

Office Hours: Monday 11.00am-12.00pm, 3:00pm-4:00pm

I joined the University in 2004. I received my BA from Hampshire College (1988), and MA (1990) and PhD (1995) from the University of Notre Dame. I previously taught at The American University in Cairo, Mount Holyoke College, James Madison University, and Gettysburg College, and served as the Assistant Director of the Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies at Hampshire College. My main teaching and research interests are in the areas of international organizations, human rights, refugees, and humanitarianism. My regional area of interest is sub-Saharan Africa, and I have conducted research in the Great Lakes region of Africa.
