I am an associate professor in political science who has been at UCSB for about 14 years. My research and teaching ranges from research design (especially quantitative methods) to political parties, democratic representation, and political institutions in comparative perspective, especially in the advanced industrial democracies. I have been involved in a variety of campus-level activities, many centered around diversity, equity, and inclusion. In the last few years, with the help of ONDAS, CITRAL, and Instructional Development, I have been working to re-think my pedagogy. I have focused on putting issues of inclusion front and center; embracing active learning and modeling; better utilizing technology judiciously to connect me to students and students to each other; and being explicit about my pedagogy. I look forward to talking with fellow faculty about all of these issues, and more!
