I also apply my work on cultural connections and identity to examine teaching and learning in Political Science and STEM higher education. This work has been generously funded by NSF (SBE; EEC).
The nature of my work takes me to numerous places, including extensive time conducting research in the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova. I have also taken short-term courses at the University of California – Berkeley and Lomonosov Moscow State University. Prior to coming to Iowa State I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Conflict Resolution Institute at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.
