I have a Ph.D. in Political Science with concentrations in international relations and comparative politics from Temple University.
My research focuses on the role of non-state actors in international environmental policy development, specifically within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Using network analysis, my dissertation investigates the dyadic relationships between environmental non-governmental organizations’ (ENGOs) depth of participation with the formal UNFCCC negotiations and their structural positions (i.e. measures of power and influence).
I have developed and taught six separate undergraduate political science courses including:
- Foreign Government
- War & Peace
- Globalization & Development
- The American Political System
- The History & Significance of Race in the United States
- American Politics in Global Perspective, Discussion and Analysis
