Welcome to my website. I am the Nancy Hanes White Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I earned my B.A. degree from the University of California at Irvine in 1993 and my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2000. I teach and do research at UNC in the Department of Political Science, where I currently serve as the Chair.
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in International Relations and World Politics, including Introductory International Relations and World Politics, International Conflict Processes, and International Conflict Resolution and Management. I also teach a CURE-Peace Science (course-based undergraduate research experience) with Professor Stephen Gent.
