I teach a wide variety of classes, including:

  • Introduction to Comparative Politics
  • Ethnic Conflict and Genocide
  • Politics of the Middle East
  • Politics of the European Union
  • Research Methods and Statistics for Political Science

... and I recently had the opportunity to teach "Cuban Politics and Culture," which included an immersion trip to Havana and Miami.

My teaching evaluations are very good, and can be found on line at www.cape.ucsd.edu or on www.ratemyprofessors.com.



My research interests are quite varied, and include a wide range of regions, topics, and historical periods. But running through it all is a fascination with the logic and limits of political authority.

My book, Hegemony and the Holocaust: State Power and Jewish Survival in Occupied Europe (Palgrave Press, forthcoming), examines why more Jewish people survived in some German-occupied countries compared to others during World War II? The answer is not what you might expect, and forces us to reconsider everything from our understanding of politics and history, to the moral and ethical questions that arise from warfare, imperialism, genocide, and state-sponsored violence.

Other recent publications include:

“Explaining the Intensity of the Arab Spring.” Digest of Middle East Studies. Vol. 24: No. 1 (Spring 2015): pp. 26-46. Co-authored with Chonghyun “Christie” Byun.

This page contains information and resources regarding my non-academic life (such as it is). It includes pictures, short stories, and other things posing as literature. As I get more of a personal life, further sections will be added.
