At the University of Arizona, I teach courses on the International Politics of the Middle East and the Politics of International Development.

Prior to beginning doctoral work, as a research fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, I helped design and implement multiple day-long crisis simulations centered on realistic scenarios and tailored to skills-based learning objectives for diplomats. I also led periodic presentations and discussions on Middle East politics for student groups and foreign delegations, and I regularly mentored program interns, providing individualized feedback on research strategies, analysis, writing, and professional communication, as well as advising them on future career options.
